An earlier post looked at the extreme tornadoes last May in Oklahoma, and how more storm shelters in homes, schools and businesses could save lives in this area. There’s now such an initiative from parents there who lost their children. Their goal is to ensure that storm shelters are installed in every school in the state.
Adaptation has throughout history required a departure from common notions and routines. If governments are not providing adequate protection in some areas, it’s up to us to find ways to take care of ourselves. Creative thought can lead to solutions that hold promise of being effective, but people will have to adjust their mindset. Infrastructure and technology that may have offered protection for years might not be the most effective choice moving forward.
So it is up to all of us to continue a positive push to benefit our future lives. Innovation is often considered unusual – at least until the masses embrace positive results from those who dared to try a different approach.
