Disaster Relief:

Take a Lesson from History

     Excuse us for living, but it a safe conclusion to say that we are experiencing more natural disasters. No matter whether you call these weather related events “climate change,” “global warming,” or “extreme weather.” Call them by their real names; like tornadoes in Joplin, Missouri, and Moore, Oklahoma, hurricanes “Katrina” and “Sandy,” western wild fires from California to Colorado, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and on and one, most recently the Oso, Washington, mudslide.

  1. Shaun, Thanks so much for reblogging this! I really appreciate this coming from you who do so much research on topics yourself! Again, I must apologize for not being attentive to everyone’s posts fro the Wolf Pack. I only post once a month & with all the rest the demands on my time of family, house, friends, etc., I struggle to even write one post. But it’s also partly my fault for talking on such a topic as this. This was quite a challenge. Also I compliment you for your interest in world wide topics. You are a broad thinker! Thanks again! Phil
