Not you of course. I’m talking to all the other people I keep hearing about. You’re angry at the media because Hurricane Irene wasn’t as catastrophic as originally forecast? Really?

Let’s see how this works out for you: Tell the families of the forty-one people who lost their lives that the storm wasn’t catastrophic enough for your approval.

As a survivor of Hurricane Andrew, Wilma and Katrina, I offer this advice: Feel flushed with gratitude instead of dwelling on anger with the media.  Actually, this will work with any situation in your life.

Gabe Berman is a native New Yorker who settled in South Florida after graduating from the University of Miami. An epiphany, a passion, and a trail of breadcrumbs led him out of Corporate America and into the career he was meant for. After eight years of writing columns for the Miami Herald, his book - Live Like A Fruit Fly - was published by HCI Books and subsequently endorsed by Deepak Chopra. His second book, The Complete B.S. Free and Totally Tested Writing Guide, helps artists find their voice and his latest work, Where Is God When Our Loved Ones Get Sick?, uncovers the answer to this haunting question.
