It's tragedies like this that we as human's should be mentally prepared for and expecting because we have the abilities within us to gain strength from the events that try to hold us down. But where disasters fail us, our hearts will teach us to go forth and rise against. Hope will always be disguised, so keep your eyes open, my friend.
