With the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy upon us,  Jay-Z has taken to his Life + Times blog to send out prayers and wishes of well-being to all those who suffered from the events.

Hov posted a photo of the basketball court at the Barclays Center, where the Brooklyn Nets played their first game over the weekend, and won. As he was thinking of their win, he was also thinking of the losses resulting from Hurricane Sandy.

Read his thoughts below.

Reflecting on the first game in Brooklyn and thinking about the hurricane.

Thinking about being undefeated and all the losses/wins that lie ahead. Life will always throw adversity and tragedy at us. We remain resilient!

Heartfelt prayers go out to those who lost their lives and to the families who continue the fight.
