When disaster strikes it can be hard to know how to go on with your life. Friends and neighbors working together can make it a lot easier.
When something is resilient, it can bend without breaking and quickly spring back to its original condition. In everyday life, it means we can absorb a shock and be able to go on with our lives.
When we have planned how we can respond to a disaster we can be prepared and know what to do to survive. The poor are always hardest hit because it takes money to stock supplies and build a safe room.
