When I wrote Is there? I forgot to add
Is there a country which can withstand mother natures fury?
In the wake of Katrina, just 9 months after the tsunami - there’s a sparing difference. In one we saw ppl coming together, acting as fast and tough as possible, governments actually trying to make a difference. Then we heard cries, promises and taunts that we Asians weren’t doing a good job of having precautions set. And what did world class precautions help people of New Orleans? Nothing.
Despite knowing there was a huge calamity, not enough was done. Despite just seeing what nature can do, just 9 months back, nothing was done. Despite knowing in dire, all help must be utilised, nothing was done.
Not getting enough help - hungry victims were shot and called looters; waiting to be saved in vain - a women died, with her, hope went as well.
Did we actually learn anything from the tsunami?
Prisoners in their own country, god bless them. May the trapped be rescued soon.
