Fundamental Failure
Having your physical, mental, and emotional needs
in a particular situation neglected or denied,
setting you up to fail despite your own efforts

In October 2012, Hurricane Sandy blew through several countries from the Caribbean up the eastern coast of the United States, killing more than 250 and leaving millions without power, homes, schools, or businesses. The storm set people up to fail at living normal lives despite their own efforts.

Years after Hurricane Sandy hit, many people were still experiencing fundamental failure because their insurance companies failed to give them money to rebuild and federal aid has been slow.

The fundamental failure caused by Sandy has been so overwhelming that many people are in counseling to help them cope. Despite their own efforts, their fundamental failure continues.

A web host transfer made some posts disappear. Luckily, I copied each post and emailed it to myself. Since I alternated success and failure posts, I will have to remove posts and republish them in success and failure order. I will do this as I have time. Apologies.
