So today I started to think about how vulnerable we are as human beings.
I started to think about this when hearing that a tornado touched down in kailua and kaneohe in Hawaii.
I started thinking about it actually the other night laying on my foam bed on the floor right next to the open doors as a storm raged outside. The thunder and lightning was insane. Scary loud boomings bouncing off of all the high rises around us in Waikiki. Lightning actually hit 2 buildings , I found out later, and severely damaged a wall.
Then I thought, wow, I bet a normal large rain has devastating effects on animals. Think of a deluge on an ant colony or a fire on forest wildlife. We really are all vulnerable when it comes to the weather. It seems to me to be getting weirder and stronger and more erratic.
I guess living on this ever changing planet is really a test of our endurance as a species. It has gone on for many years without us, and maybe one day will start all over. Who knows…..?
