A chainsaw-wielding nun in Florida, has become a symbol for everyone pitching in to help get life back to normal after the devastating damage caused by Hurricane Irma.
Sister Margaret Ann, a teacher at Archbishop Coleman F. Carroll High School in West Kendall, Florida, found the chainsaw in her school’s closet, so she took it out to saw up some downed trees that were blocking the road.
“We teach our students: Do what you can to help other people, don’t think of yourselves,” she said during an interview on CNN. “That’s what I wanted to do.”
An off-duty police officer captured Ann in action and posted the video on Twitter.
“He said, ‘You know though, Sister, the police will do this.’ And I said ‘but it’s going to take them too long … it’s dangerous, people are going to get hurt here.’ “
Now that North Korea has nuclear weapons, apparently South Korea wants them too.
Although South Korean President Moon Jae-in took office last May with a promise of de-nuclearizing the region, a growing number of South Koreans are growing worried about the presence of nuclear weapons to their north.
Some, including the nation’s opposition party, are considering whether to ask the U.S. to deploy nuclear weapons in South Korea as a line of defence. The U.S. had nuclear weapons in South Korea several decades ago, but in 1991, then-president George Bush withdrew them as part of a non-proliferation pact with Russia.
In Longueuil, police arrested a man after he apparently robbed two shops in the span of 10 minutes, and made off in a stolen car.
The robberies occurred at 10 p.m., at a store on Bellerose St. in the city’s Vieux Longueuil district, during which an employee suffered non-life-threatening injuries as the suspect emptied the contents of the cash register.
Ten minutes later on Goyette St., a block away, a second robbery occurred, allegedly by the same suspect, who fled the scene while police were responding to the first robbery.
