Social Design Issue
I think that what I am about to say is probably the most obvious thing I possibly could say. I think that a huge issue that our world is now facing and that needs to be solved through design is the current situation in the areas devastated by Hurricane Katrina. It has been over a year since the storm, and if the lease on a FEMA trailer is only 18 months, that area is about to be hit with another huge housing problem. I think that a lot of the focus has been taken away from the problems still plaguing this area of the deep south, and people need to think more about how this problem could be solved, or at least come closer to it being solved. Of course, a lot of the problem here has to do with the incredible amount of information that is sent into our minds and our homes every single day, which causes us to very quickly become tired of hearing of the same thing. But that is a whole different rant, and one that I do not choose to go into today. Back to what I was saying, we as a society need to come up with a solution to this problem, so that more people can move back into their homes and their lives can begin to once again resemble some sense of normalcy.
