Hi TK, great history. It makes a big difference if you get out and see the world and realize how much we have in the west and how little others have. This reality check is pretty refreshing and like you said our systems are build to simply work under normal conditions. No hospitals keep extra staff around for the big disaster that might come once in 10 years… at that point its up to everyone of us to take care of themselves.
