Katrina Hurricane Issue – How Prepared Are You?

You are currently viewing Katrina Hurricane Issue – How Prepared Are You?

Recently, I have been watching the news about Hurricane Katrina and I am sure you have probably been watching, too. My heart goes out to these people and I pray they get the assistance they need as fast as humanly possible. Although we do not have control over natural calamities like tornados, floods, earthquakes, hurricanes, landslides, etc, don’t you think that we can at least prepare ourselves in some way so that when such a thing occurs, we can take some necessary measures? Is there some way whereby we can reduce the damage to some extent, or maybe ensure that we have prepared ourselves?

Actually, there are lots of things that we can do to ensure that we are safe to some extent, till some real help arrives. I have prepared an ebook from various public domain resources which will take you by the hand and teach you exactly how to go about it. I am not selling this ebook, it is free to download – my due diligence to the society at large. To download the ebook, please visit this link: http://dealz.in/protect-free.htm

I have also observed that many people are selling such information. Please do not buy any such ebook I am certainly not going to buy anyone’s stuff and HOPE that my money goes to these people. Think about it – it first has to go to this person and then they have to take out their supposed costs and then, MAYBE, they’ll forward the money to a charitable organization. No way The affected people are devastated, they lost their jobs, their homes, some lost their loved one’s lives, or maybe even their own life due to this major catastrophe. How dare these people try to profit from this disaster
