Natural disasters

It seems as though more than fifty people have died as a result of the storm which hit France, most on the Atlantic Coast, where flood walls gave way, and there has been considerable flood damage elsewhere.

There is no hierarchy in death:  the dead of France, of Chile, of Haiti take equal rank, mourned by their families and friends.

However, France has the means to repair its' material damage. Chile less so, but  what of Haiti?

It would be a further tragedy if the fate of Haiti's people became lost to view by what has happened closer to home.

While we're arguing with insurers, let us remember that there are people who have nothing to insure. Who have nothing at all.

Don't forget Haiti.
