    Someone is not telling the truth. Since the hurricanes people have been crying poverty, no money, no roof, no place to live, no jobs, etc., so how is it possible for all of you to be buying all of these things? With no roofs, shacking up with other family and friends, claiming no food, where are you putting all of this stuff and how can you afford it? Someone is not telling the truth!

      This is so sad. Happiness does not lie in things. It lies in love and kindness. The US forgot that a long time ago. Thankfully most other countries are still not so grasping.
