The following video is a link to my favorite doc-drama on pandemics. It was made by the History Channel around 2010. It follows the life of a family in Los Angeles struggling to survive during an (at the time) hypothical influenza pandemic. While we watch the family go through the ups and downs of survival, a panel of experts gives their professional input on the situations they are facing. Overall, I think it is a fun and educational documentary.
M.L. Lewis is not new to the world of writing. She has written various short stories and poems throughout the years and has won multiple awards in art and literature. The highest honor she received was Poet of the Year in 2000, and again in 2005. A poem she wrote in honor of law enforcement can be seen in the book, Everything You Wanted to Know about the Heroes in Blue. She was also featured in Encounter magazine for the volunteer work she did for the United States troops. In 2010 she won Resident of the Year in a local newspaper titled The South Hills Messanger. Today, she spends her time increasing her knowledge on disaster preparedness while working on her Ph. D. in Paranormal Studies.
