MOVE TO A SHELTER What A Horrid Choice In A Hurricane!

A hurricane is a HORRID thing!

What should I do?

“Leadership” like governors tell me to go to a shelter.

Common sense tells me I should stay with my property.

News media just excites the situation.

“Shelters” have a bad name. Leave your belongings for 30 seconds and somebody will steal.

Stay at home COULD be dangerous.

Thank God I don’t have to make this decision!!!!!

Tucked away between the rugged gorges and valleys of the Ethiopian highlands is an egalitarian commune that defies the norms of traditional society. Awra Amba, founded in the utopian mold 44 years ago, has managed to thrive where so many other attempts have failed.

Awra Amba could be described as communist, puritanical, pantheistic, feminist, or even cult-like, but its 450 residents are wary of such descriptors.
