Just Another Normal Disaster

My heart aches as I try to imagine the feelings of those people experiencing North America’s latest natural disaster: Hurricane Florence. The storm is crossing North Carolina as I write, and there is nothing I can do. Still, empathy rages on. Likely, I will be a victim someday. The odds of a natural disaster impacting my safe and cozy life grows greater with each molecule of pollution added to the system. Nature will do what she must. If only the human species would respect that and concede?
