When I saw this week’s topic, all that I could think about was the thin line between normalcy and utter destruction. That line was crossed this week as the typically tranquil waters of many rivers and streams breached the boundaries of their banks and became raging torrents, inundating homes, businesses, roads, parks, and a zoo. Lives were lost. Families were displaced. Property was damaged. Trash floated down streets, as brown, murky water mixed with heating oil spilled from flooded homes.
Truly, Mother Nature observes no boundaries – and every now and then she feels the need to remind us.
