Due to a serious wind storm, large-scale damaged occurred across the Lower Mainland,tearing down trees and flooding streets. Many parts of the area were without power for more than 24 hours.
When this type of disaster takes place, never forget to extend help. Your small gestures make a big difference and are of great relief to those who are afflicted.
During the recent wind storm, many of us witnessed acts of selfless service.
People came forward and provided assistance to remove tress and clean up the streets. Some offered tea and coffee. Indeed, it was a community -level effort which was commendable. Kudos to all volunteers.
No matter who you are, your help is great. When any disasters happen around us, we must first look at our neighbourhoods where the disabled, seniors, the sick or the young may be in trouble. If they are, we must provide them with the necessary support.
In the hour of difficulty, we have to get together and demonstrate the utmost human gesture of kindness and with that we are able to make trouble easy and fight against any natural disaster.
