A nun with a chainsaw?

Sister Margaret Ann is principal of Archbishop Coleman F. Carroll High School, in southwest Miami, Florida. The school's Facebook page says, "We are so blessed to have her and the Carmelite Sisters at our school. We are proud of the example they set for our students and other members of our community every day." So what did she do to merit such praise?

The road near her school was blocked by a fallen tree after hurricane Irma. "We couldn't get through," she said. Then she remembered there were chainsaws in a closet at her school. "They needed to be used," she added, so she grabbed one and was cutting up the fallen tree when Miami-Dade police spotted her. An officer took a video of her working, and posted it online. The police wrote, "Thank you, Sister, and all our neighbors who are working together to get through this." In reply, Sister Margaret Ann said she was trying to live up to something her school teaches its students: "Do what you can to help."
