Do Natural Disasters Really Bring Out The Best In People?

Lately, there has been a consistent and worldly presence of natural disasters. We can’t deny that something is up with Mother Nature and the elements are reacting! Social media has been a powerful tool to bring awareness of each other and the struggles we face, not as countrymen but as human beings. But if we’re not careful of how we perceive social media, we can get caught up in the panic and chaos. This panic is amplified while scrolling through videos, photos, and posts that are meant to keep popular content circulating. However, we can’t blame Facebook for doing what it does.
