I remember this one time when my cousins and I were staying at my grandparents' house. We got flooded and what did the neighborhood kids do (including my cousins and me)? We played in the flood. It was like a huge swimming pool. After that day, I've had dreams where that same community was like Atlantis, submerged in water. We swam just like mer-people but without the tail. It was fun. In reality, floods are dangerous and playing in floods is dangerous.
Wherever you are, it's horrible to be caught up in a flood, especially one that destroys your home or leaves some people stranded, trapped, or worse. However, experience has shown me that people will live on, especially if we band together as a community and as a nation. If people help people. And hopefully, these experiences will teach us to better care for our planet.
