The devastation of hurricane Irma was wide-spread and will take years to fully recover from. The total damage Hurricane Irma caused is calculated to be around $100 billion.

Irma flooded the entire area, leaving some places with hip-high water; buildings were lost, and caused destruction to anything that stood in the way.
Having to wait in line for so much time created a lot of chaos. A couple of people got beaten up for cutting line and many people lost their gasoline containers because thieves stole them. With many houses without security due to the lack of electricity, it was easy for the theifs to rob houses. Another reason why the aftermath of the hurricane is difficult is because we had no communication with our family members and we did not know if they were safe unless we drive to there houses. Although the aftermath of the hurricane was the most difficult, it definitely had some pros to it, for example, I met a lot of people to hang out with that I did not know that live so close to me.

Upon hearing Allie's death, who battled with leukemia at a young age, Holden is unable to cope with the reality and decides to take out his frustrations through destructive tendencies. J.D. Salinger writes, “I was only thirteen, and they were going to have me psychoanalyzed and all, because I broke all the windows in the garage. I don’t blame them. I slept in the garage the night he died, and I broke all the godam windows with my fist, just for the hell of it (Salinger 44).” He was inexperienced with handling grief and death at a young age; rather than rationalizing the situation, he decides to take out his grief and frustrations though destroying property and hurting himself in the process.
Noah and Jude hardly talked and their Father was always going out for walks, "clearing his head." The Mother's death was sudden and unexpected, as she was killed in a car accident, which was another big factor that caused the twins to lose touch, as neither of them were expecting it in any way. I know that if I experienced something so sudden and life changing like that, it would affect me dramatically, maybe even causing me to shut people out, like Jude and Noah did to most people. The guilt that ensued after the Mum's death also majorly affected the twins. Each thought that they had caused their Mums death in different ways, whether it was something they said or something they did the last time they saw her.

Instead men, but most women, are expected to work from teenage years until well into adulthood. The consequences of this have devastating effects. The documentary, The Hidden Face of Globalization describes how exhausted and ill female employees are because of their work schedule and how “families are collapsing” and children are left at home to fend for themselves. Some workers never reach adulthood due to the high amounts of factory fires in the country. During the especially infamous collapse of the Rana Plaza in 2013, 1,100 workers died including children brought to work by their parents (Bartley 147).
Twelve thousand children, thirty thousand women, and over three hundred thousand men, all were civilians who had nothing to do with the war. Families were separated, women were widowed, children became orphans, and men saw their own children dead in front of them, and their only fault was refusing to flee away in order to live in their own country.
