No matter where you live, disaster can strike in an instant. It has happened to me.
When it does, the victims are stunned, shocked, and numb to everyday feelings.
They are faced with loss of property, friends, and maybe even loved ones.
Disasters may range from flood or a fire, to a car wreck or storm. When it is over, most people breathe a sigh of relief and whisper, “Thank God it’s over. All that matters is that we are alive.”
Unfortunately, as that numbness wears off people realize just how much they have lost.
Some simply give up and move on. Others, with an American spirit of resilience and inborn toughness, pick up the pieces and begin to rebuild. It has happened a lot in my part of the world, once even to me.
