Hello Hurricane.

Earthquakes, Landslides, Typhoons, Hurricanes, Tsunamis.

Disasters come and go. Each one that comes, is followed by a wave of charity. Advertisements are broadcasted on TV, Facebook posts are posted, everyone suddenly feels SYMPATHETIC, some question life, others are momentarily thankful we live in a "disaster free land", World Vision becomes the trend topic.

Then, the wave passes. No more ads, facebook posts, weeping, questions, thanksgiving, world vision. Like pop culture, no?

We need to ask ourselves this...

Are our efforts merely into temporary charity, or into a permanent change in our world?
