I don't see what is wrong with people in Flordia. They constantly get hit by hurricanes, they know they are going to get him by hurricanes, and by the
looks of it, they dont care that they are going to continue to get hit by hurricanes. Personally, after the first hurricane I would get out of there
as fast as I could, without even glaring back. What makes these people any different?
With headlines in the papers and on the television recently that include:
"Hurricane Frances batters Florida"
"Hurricane tears through Florida"
and" Flordia gets hit, again"
I know some of you are asking the exact thing I am. Why do these people continue to rebuild their homes, only to have them knocked to the ground
again. Why do these people do it? Do they really love Flordia that much, that every Summer they will have to rebuild their lives?
I am sure people stay in Flordia because that is where they were born and raised. Is staying in your hometown really worth risking your live over? The
danger is there, you wouldn't stand infont of a loaded gun would you?
Others are going to say "Easier said than done." Explain me the logic in that. Sell your house, move to somewhere safe, away from where hurricanes
hit. Tell me how that is harder then rebuilding your house, setting up your kids funeral (whose body was never found) and starting you life over
again. I just dont see the logic, maybe I am the only one.
