My feelings are diminished after reading this article of course I care and feel bad for people who had to go through this and actually struggle. I was barley affected by the storm and had only lost power for a few hours each day. I can’t really say much due to the fact I was lucky compared to other people who’s homes and lives were taken from them. There are many mixed reasons as to why people would want to buy those shirts and hurricane stuff but I personally do not care no want any of it
I think that it is okay to sell these shirts After a event because some people who had terrible experiences might want to wear them maybe they should have give them to people in shelters or those who lost homes and or family members. Even those who could have died but were saved. For those who weren’t effected as bad could purchase a shirt. After 911 almost everyone in my neighborhood had American flags, t-shirts, sweat shirts, car stickers and so on. Yes the people who were making these items were making a lot of money but it was such a tragic event for all Americans. Especially throws within the New York area. People who bought shirts and stuff wanted something of the event to have as a memory.
Many people are selling hurricane sandy merchandise. People will do literally anything to make money. I think that selling these things is not a good idea because people have lost almost everything they have in the storm. It’s not funny to joke about something so serious. Selling shirts like “I survived hurricane sandy” cause some people did not survive. Unless the sellers are giving a great deal of money to those who lost everything they shouldn’t make the itemsSam McCauley
I think it is a bad thing how people are selling hurricane sandy merchandise and not giving it to charities that needed. If you are going to do something like that you can’t lie to the people and say 100%is going when it is not. Some people thought it was funny how one company wrote “Frankenstorm” on a t-shirt. On the other hand, people could have got offended from that because they lost family members and houses and they could think that it’s not something to joke about.
This article discusses that after a tragic storm, people and stands in New York want an object to remember what had happen. People who make these merchandise don’t care that many people died in the hurricane they just want to make money. There are shirts that say “I survived hurricane sandy” and “Frankenstorm 2012”. The people that are producing these merchandise only care about money and nothing That has had a lot of damage. The producers say that all profit goes to the people that were affected. They just want business and I think it’s wrong.
