Hurricane related PS?

Postby Easy-E » Tue Nov 06, 2012 3:15 pm

I have a fairly unimpressive PS I was planning on using (just about studying history and recognizing the role of the lawyer, pretty dull), though recently, like many others, I endured Hurricane Sandy living on the central Jersey coast. I didn't lose my house or something of similar magnitude, but it was quite a life experience and taught me a valuable lesson on people working together in times of crisis. Does it seem possible to work this into a more engaging PS, or is it going to seem desperate trying to tie the two together? Would it end up being somewhat unremarkable since so many people had it much worse than me, friends of mine included? Thanks for any thoughts.

Yeah, that crossed my mind. Though I suppose my current PS panders as well.
