I knew that there were a lot of people that were suffering because of all of the heavy flooding as the rivers were a lot higher than they should be. I knew that we were going to be flooded as we had been in the past but I had no idea that it was going to be as bad as it was. My friends said that their houses were also pretty bad and that was not a good thing. The los angeles water damage was so bad that it set new records for the damage that was done to a lot of the different homes and businesses that came in front of the river. The river pushed the banks to the limits and then the rocks along the edge of the river started to cave in and then eventually all of the walls that held the river back were gone. The water flowed over the rocks like it was a natural occurrence.
I wanted to make sure that I could make a difference to help others. I am a high school teacher and there were a lot of people that were not affected so I decided to get them with the people that were badly affected and then we helped them rip out all of the bad sheet rock from their homes. We also tried to console the people that had lost all of their belongings and the family pictures that once dotted the walls of their loving homes. Lives were never going to be the same again, but nobody was killed and that was a miracle. We were doing what we could to make people feel better, that there were still a lot of people out there that cared enough to volunteer their time during a hard situation to be in.
