I think there are always lessons to be learned whether it is from natural disasters war or terrorist attacks But it seems as if the lessons learned are always forgotten Maybe not the people who experienced it first hand but the rest of the world seems to move on It becomes another page in our already sad history I could agree with both Ash and Will But I agree most with Ashs view there are going to be more breakdowns of civilization in the future A major impact on the United States has been the terrorist attacks on September 11 Though we had no major rioting looting or raping during this crisis it took a toll on everyone Then there was the war in Iraq It seems there hasnt been major breakdowns here either Unless you count the way the US military degraded humiliated and dehumanized the prisoners at Abu Graib The war impacted the soldiers who are in Iraq but hasnt seemed to take a huge effect on our civilization Then the next major event that I can recall is Katrina But right before Katrina there was a tornado here in Wyoming that wiped out many many homes in the community of Wright This town didnt start looting or raping They didnt jump at the chance to start acting uncivilized They cleaned up and started to rebuild their lives and homes again Granted it wont be as easy for New Orleans because it was damaged with water but its just the concept of it How is there such a huge difference that one community can pull together and rebuild while another community steals rapes or even kills each other Hurricane Katrina gave us a lesson on how close humans are to falling through the wafer thin crust of civilization as Ash writes In a matter of hours New Orleans had transformed into an every man for himself mentality with no regard for the value
