While millions of Americans come together for Thanksgiving, here on New York's Staten Island some residents are finding it hard to celebrate. Many homes still bear the scars of superstorm Sandy, and with lives devastated, it's hard to be thankful. Tina Salluzzo has been living without electricity on the second floor of her home which escaped the onslaught. SOUNDBITE: TINA SALLUZZO, RESIDENT WHOSE HOME WAS DAMAGED BY SANDY, SAYING (English): "I don't know. Don't feel like Thanksgiving to me. I got to thank God that we still all good, still all alive, but I don't know how we're going to do this, you know. I really don't know." Fortunately for storm victims, communities have rallied to keep the Thanksgiving tradition alive. Food has been donated and turkeys cooked, so everyone can have a taste of a Thanksgiving feast. SOUNDBITE: SIMON BANGIYEV, RESIDENT, SAYING (English): "Not being home, you know. Being surrounded with your family, you know, but all we have to do is just move on. Keep on going." In his Thanksgiving message, President Barack Obama applauded volunteers for helping storm victims. He said they had given "glimmers of hope" to those in need.
