Shocking

In many cases the worst catastrophe is shocking. It’s comprehensible fear and preoccupation, but people running over others, screams and even people on their knees just increased panic. Many children broke in weeping because of adult’s desperation. The best you can do in these cases is just keep serenity, everybody knows it although, for many people it can be impossible because of several circumstances. We must effort to get it.
