The earthquakes and volcanoes we have no control over and no warning. But the powerful storms and unusual weather patterns many blame on climate change which is in our control. We need to think about how are our lifestyles are affecting climate change. We also need to think about how our lifestyles are not prepared for major disasters.
Many times when we travel we take all of the necessary items that we would think we will need for our extended departure from home. However during our daily lives we really are prepared for an emergency to happen while we are away from home. How many people take emergency supplies with them on their way to work or to the grocery store? We need to be more vigilant about being prepared for emergencies.
In the meantime please help out people around the world that have been affected by the most recent tragic devastations as best you can; and if you can't contribute at least pray for the people affected in those areas.
Somehow I think all of these destructive weather and geological events are going to be continued.
