What in the World Is Going On?!

When American soldiers arrived in Europe, during WWI, they carried a deadly virus which spread like wildfire. No one knew what was going on, but people everywhere were dying.

By the time the war was over, the virus - which caused a deadly illness which became known as “Spanish Flu” - had killed millions of people. Historians estimate that it actually killed more people than the war itself.

What would it have been like to have one catastrophe (the Spanish Flu) pile on another (the war)?

As people tried to determine what in the world was going on, do you think they were fearful of the next bad thing which might come their way? How would you cope in such an environment?
