I couldn't stop crying long enough to see the pictures. How horrible for these poor people and most looked like homes that we dream of having. This is the kind of people that will survive though. One comment said that within a year if we were attacted by Iran and they caused this kind of damage in all places at once, we would starve. They don't have any Idea of the kind of people they are talking about.

While this is such a sad (unnecessary) tragedy, this proves just how resilient and resourceful people can be. I hate that they are going through all of this.

Those are some very resilient people and I hope their homes dont flood after all the work they've done.
