It's bad enough going through a disaster, let alone going through the process of being displaced to a totally different environment and hoping to go back to normalcy even though you know deep inside that the "normal life" you had will never be the same again.
However, one thing remains, and will always be comforting: that human nature is most of the time good and kind.
I am sure you will find your new life better and I hope you hold the belief that you will always be better today than yesterday, then, you will never ever need to look back at the bad things that had happened (the disaster included) and move on.
God Bless You.
I think I can represent people in my part of the world to wish you well.
I stumbled across this blog as I was wasting my life away clicking on the "next blog" button on the top left hand corner of the page, and felt compelled to leave a comment.
It dawn upon me that, despite the shortcomings of the current POTUS, there are real people with real problem like the rest of us in the so-called "Third World Countries", and had to remind myself how lucky we are, living in countries that are not prone to disasters like typhoons, earthguake, hurricane etc etc.
Hang in there, human-shortcomings are short-lived (they won't last longer than 8 years), but the good in human spirit is forever.
