ReadViewThink – January 13, 2020

I mentioned yesterday about an electrical outage. Such an inconvenience! But being without power for about twenty hours is nothing compared to people being killed or the extensive property damage caused by weekend storms across the south. Nor nothing compared to people and animals losing lives and habitats from fires in Australia. Or nothing compared to the multiple earthquakes and their effects to residents of Puerto Rico. And nothing compared to being evacuated from homes due to a volcanic eruption as has occurred in the Philippines. I could go on and on about tragic and disrupting, disturbing events, but you get my drift. To me, my inconvenience was a blessing. Is yours?
