What we know is that we have been shaken and continue to be pushed out of our comfort zone by the series of natural disasters that have shook Houston/ Louisiana, Florida, Puerto Rico, and Mexico in Chiapas and Mexico City. We have forest fires in California. As well as those disasters we have the mass hooting and killing of innocent people in Las Vegas. We have the ongoing worry about what can happen in the standoff between North Korea and the United States. We have the debate about the national anthem, respect for the flag and athletes taking the knee following Colin Kaepernick. What are we to do? What are we to think? How do we make sense of all of this?
In terms of natural disasters we can say that they are beyond us, that that is the way our world and universe works; we will have hurricanes, storms, and earthquakes and they will come in those places where they have always come. People say that they are more severe now because of climate change. We will surely receive more information and studies that will confirm this.
