When it seems like nothing positive can be found amidst Sandy‘s aftermath, photos like these remind you otherwise. Sandy proved to be a huge bonding experience for everyone affected. It brought out people’s generosity, their willingness to come together as a community, and even allowed President Obama and Republican Chris Christie to transcend political lines in this time of need right before the big election. People have been helping each other via social media, as well, like on Facebook pages for the Jersey Shore and other areas where users post that they have generators and other supplies to offer. Now, catch a glimpse of some of Sandy’s most inspiring images:
