Dear people who lost their homes due to natural disasters,

I’m not calling you homeless. I wish I could understand what you’re going through. I’m so sorry. No one should ever have to go through this. If I would do anything to help you out, I could. I really could. I’m just really glad that you’re safe, and no harm has come to you, whoever reads this. I hope you have all the help you need to survive this tragedy. If not, I promise I will do everything I can to help you out, even if I can’t give you too much.

150 million people each decade have to evacuate their homes due to sudden natural disasters and get displaced from their homes. Currently, the country with the most evacuees is China because 14 million people evacuate their homes each year due to disasters. I am honestly shocked by that fact because China is also the country that uses the most energy forces, and the most people. It just shows that you are not safe anywhere, and I wish I could change that.

We live in an imperfect world, and we can’t change what happens to us, sadly. The thing that makes me really sad is how people judge you because you don’t have a home. They think you’re too lazy to get a job, or you have alcohol problems, but they never see the true side to your situation. They don’t understand what you’re going through because they haven’t experienced it themselves, or they simply don’t care. I want to change that.

I want to do everything I can to help others realize that you guys are suffering from probably losing family, friends, and your homes in natural disasters. Not the other way around: them thinking that you simply don’t want to find a job or has dumb problems, as others put it. I really hope this letter will help you out, even though it won’t seem as much.

Your new friend
