Here we go:

Caitlin flinched as a blue spark of electricity shot from the hydro tower above. " That could be a potential disaster in the greenhouse she gasped.  I’d best get over there quickly.  If memory serves, the last time this happened we lost nearly all our winter roses."
Matthew met Caitlin at the door to the greenhouse complex. “ It was a terrorist attack in Carterville.”  he shouted.  “This is an outrage.  Do you realize how much cash we stand to lose?”
Caitlin shook her head sadly. “ Honest Matthew; is that all you care about?  What about all those people in Carterville?  Aren’t they worth more than a few frozen red roses.  So our heat and light and the fan went out.  Big deal  What was the intention of the terrorists?  I can tell you it wasn’t to destroy our cash crop.   Their intention was to cause death and destruction in yet another innocent settlement.  You can’t begin to draw a parallel between what the people of Carterville are experiencing and our situation here. “
“You’re right of course Caitlin.  Let’s get over there and see what we can do to help.”

“Good, and then I’ll help you get the greenhouse sorted out.”

  3. I know a few people who would think of their money first and people second, thankfully not too many and once the initial shock is over, like Matthew, they realise people are more important.
