Remembering Hurricane Fabian 18 Years Later

Fabian’s 18th Anniversary Memorial Cancelled
Due to unforeseen circumstances, the memorial for the four Bermudian lives lost on the 18th anniversary of Hurricane Fabian was not able to take place yesterday and had to be cancelled.

Despite this, Chaplain Dr. Kevin J.T. Santucci thanked Minister of National Security the Honorable Rene Ming and the Commissioner of the Bermuda Police Service (BPS) Steven Corbishley for all the work that they are continuing to do and also to everyone who helped prepare for the event.

“ Our hearts are saddened today as we look back, we can truly say that we have been blessed as a people,” Dr. Santucci, who himself lost a family member in the 2003 hurricane, said.

“But also looking forward, we can look at the children and grandchildren who have now grown and they are all looking toward the future in a positive way reflecting back on their loved ones.”

The way that Bermudians show support for one another during and after things like hurricanes and tropical storms further affirms Dr. Santucci that everyone is their brother’s keeper, especially in a small place like Bermuda.

“ As we move forward with the uncertainty of an oncoming storm [Hurricane Larry], let us all work together, support one another and always find ways to assist whatever we do,” he said. “ Thank you and God bless all of Bermuda, on behalf of all the organizers of this event.
