When Disaster Strikes - Poem by David Dorby

Without warning, Disaster Strikes
Without a sign, Disaster Strikes
Without the chance to prepare ourselves, Disaster Strikes
Without time to evacuate, Disaster Strikes

Reach out to your brothers and give a helping hand
Reach out t your friends and give a helping hand
Reach out to the strangers and give a helping hand
Reach out to your enemies and give a helping hand

Be generous and give freely
Freely give and freely you shall receive

Do not ask why
Just say thank-you that the worst is over

Together we shall start over again
Together we shall bring hope to the victims
Together we shall strive to make tomorrow a better day
Together we shall unite when disaster strikes
