In the 1600’s when Europeans began to settle in North America, there were 1037 million acres of forestland.

Petra Nemcova once said, “We cannot stop natural disasters but we can arm ourselves with knowledge: so many lives wouldn’t have to be lost if there was enough disaster preparedness.” (Brainy Quote) A natural disaster is unpredictable and will obliterate anything in its path. Families and victims go through sorrow and nuisance. I watched many emotions arise and spirits emerge when I saw the victims of the earthquake that happened in Haiti six years ago. Seeing the devastation of a natural disaster allowed me to change into a better person by helping and wanting to give back to their now extravagant community by rebuilding the kaput, wrecked roads.
