Nature's fury time and again takes heavy toll of people all over the world. It does not spare or choose to exert its devastating effects. When I see the heroic work done by the rescue team, hospital staff, police department and all other auxiliary services -belief in human love and camaraderie grow in unimaginable proportion and respect for them make me salute them. The power failure and all man-made gadgets do not stand the test of natural disasters. Mayors, Governors and the president become scapegoats for the help the citizen require do not reach in time. What people need to understand all are humans- they stand frail and small before nature. President Obama and his colleagues are now on the scanner for what they could deliver. Dignified as he is President Obama with all his humane touch need to muster all his resources to reach the hearts of the people which he does. We the citizens all over stand united in praying and extending our moral strength to the victims and to citizens of America. We know they are resilient and like tender grass will bend over to overcome the disaster.
