On “Isaac Claims Fatiality as Thousands Forced to Evacuate”

This article was a very fast read. As a lover of all things fiction and artistic, it is difficult for me to really emmerse myself in news writing because I feel that there is so little emotion.

“(They) were rescued by a neighbor on Wednesday. ‘We were in susvivor mode.’ he said.”

“(He) thought he and his family would be safe after Isaac made landfall until he saw the fast-rising water. At that point, he knew he had to get his family out of their home.”

These quotes are about people litterally fleeing from their homes as water rises quickly, yet I am not blown away by the emotion that I expected there to be when discussing such a serious situation. Maybe it’s just me, but I like seeing the actual story behind the tragedy, not just a cold report on what happened.
