Request to Visitors

Postby iheartsj » Sun Nov 05, 2017 8:49 am

Some people are anxious for tourists to return to the islands. Most of these own businesses and need to make a living. Others are not so excited for tourist return. They are still very traumatized.

I have a couple suggestions for tourists.

Don't ask residents to retell their storm story to you. It was difficult enough to live through the storm and the ongoing struggle for survival and recovery. Many are suffering from PTS.

Please don't bring young children. The images of destruction they see may stay with them and cause nightmares for life. As a young child, my family traveled to an area of our city that was hit by tornadoes. The images are still burned into my brain and I have had nightmares about tornadoes ever since.

Thank you

Iheartsj, how did you come to this conclusion? Are you speaking for the residents of St John or from your continuing fear of tornadoes? While some may agree with your reasoning, I don't get it.
