Unfortunately a girl I went to high school with died from H1N1 and my friend's mom died from shoveling snow after the recent blizzard. It is difficult for me to grasp, because it seems like after the disaster, everything returns to normal. Yet, we can't bring these people back. When I hear about people dying in disasters, most the time it is so far away and I think it's really bad, but that's life. I think when it hits home, it really shocks you. I'm not really "depressed" about it, because I didn't know them closely.
