As the World Turns

Texas after Hurricane Harvey
It seems there is the disaster of the day that points out how fragile our lives are.

The tragedies of the earthquakes, hurricanes, and Las Vegas massacre are reminding me to be thankful for the blessings that I have. 

Mexican Earthquake
I have been privileged to travel the world to see and experience far away places, but I am reminded by the recent events of the world how quickly everything can change.

Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria
I am a bit frustrated that those suffering from the disasters, whether in Texas or the Caribbean, or Nevada are so quickly forgotten by the news media who seem more focused upon the news cycle rather than making a meaningful change to the world by exposing the needs across the hemisphere.

The disasters should bring out two important aspects in each of us.

1. Give thanks
2. Give help

Don't just sit there, do something.
