12. If you were left behind to possibly drown, it could tell
you that your government considers you disposable. It might change the way you think about the have's and have nots and you might feel this is your chance to even the score. I think if people don't want their stuff stolen, then they should extend a helping hand by making sure their government has an evacuation plan in the case of disasters for EVERYONE, not just those who can afford to leave.
