Katrina and Nature

Nature is once again reminding us of who has the real power. The best we can do is survive, learn, and be better prepared for the next one.

Remember, storms, earthquakes, asteroids, etc. are Nature’s way of telling us we are not in control of all things, and in fact we are in control of very few things.

Where and when did we forget about the survival of the human species and turn all of our focus to the quality of the here and now?

What have we really done to protect ourselves from Nature? I’m afraid the answer is embarrassing. Maybe if we stopped fighting amongst ourselves and turned that energy towards survival of the species we would stand a chance, a small one, but at least our BEST chance.
