  1. Life is so precious. Thank you for this video reminder of what was and what will be. Positivity, determination, community, faith, hope, love of each other and God’s Earth. Blessings to all on St John!!

  2. Very inspirational! We are from Chicago and will be coming to St thomas/John’s on Friday. So happy to come back!! We’ve been there numerous times and can’t wait to suppost the Islands!!

  3. The people of ST.John are such an inspiration and continually remind us of what really is important in life! Perseverance at its best. Coral Bay and her residents are the reason we fell in love with the island over 10 years ago and we are so elated that we will be returning for Kentucky Derby week in 2019 and look forward to reuniting with old friends. Anne and Christian beautifully done!

  4. Thank you for this video. Brought me to tears. My husband and I love St. John, have been many times and will be back next year.

  5. Kenny Chesney got it so right!!
    And then he put his words/songs into action and recovery.
    Bravo/Brava “Love City”!!!
    St. John exemplifies the best of humanity & community!!
    Words fail …see you in March 2019!!!
