The ACS meeting in NOLA is now in the rear view mirror, and I can only hope your meeting was as productive and fun as mine, even with a defeat or two during the week. I was blessed to meet many of our colleagues (and of course fellow US citizens) from Puerto Rico. The storms of 2017 are no longer making headlines and web page hits, but so much remains to repair the damage on the island. With perhaps good reasons to grumble (and more), every one of our colleagues from PR that I met, from students to tenured faculty, possessed an unbelievable grace about moving forward to repair, restore and thrive. Amazing people.
