Brooklyn Attorney Helps Forgotten Victims of the Haitian Earthquake
By Michael Boyajian
America is not a perfect place but it is a generous country and there are many heroes here whose stories go untold. I would like to tell you about one hero in particular, Brooklyn attorney T.K. Small. T.K. has Muscular Dystrophy and spent a good portion of his early life in a children’s hospital in Westchester County. The plan there was that once he turned eighteen he would be sent to an out of state nursing home where he would be warehoused for the rest of his life.

Each hurricane season, we brace ourselves. We hope that our loved ones will remain safe in the cities and countrysides we still identify as home.
But the Caribbean and states of Mexico were not spared by Noel. With at least 75-mile hour winds and a relentless downpour, the tropical hurricane pounded on small towns. Thousands of homes have been destroyed while swelling rivers have literally left the capital of Tabasco under water.
The resulting evacuation and displacement are massive. Hundreds of thousands of people have had to flee to safety from Tabasco alone.
