The Panic Caused by Irene - Page 2
I am glad that the authorities are taking the necessary precautions to ensure the safety of their citizens. I am also fortunate that I do not live near the shoreline or a river. I certainly hope that everyone survives the storm and that no lives are lost. But we have to remember one thing. We are not a third world country. We have resources to help those in need. Should we lose power, we will eventually have it turned backed on. We can rebuild any structure that becomes damaged. What I am saying is we are not a country like Haiti. A country that suffered greatly and has not had the resources to help their people. We all saw what the forces of nature did to those people and the little they had. We felt sorry and gave donations for about 10 minutes. and then we went on with our lives. No matter what this storm brings, we will survive any temporary set-back it may cause. Let us be grateful for that.
