Mother Nature is a force to reckon with

After the amazing display of natural strength exhibited Monday evening, as thunderstorms, wind and rain pushed their way into the Southland, something occurred to me as flashes of lightening danced through dawn’s early light. In addition to the wars on terror we are spending billions on, our fears of nuclear weapons in large and small countries, the ignored level of poverty in our own country, parents paying for their children’s schoolbooks, another mission to outer space with a ridiculous price tag (Sept. 20), absurd gasoline prices, as well as the horror and destruction wrought by Katrina and our administration’s inability to financially, physically and emotionally cope with a natural disaster, we have a far more formidable and predictable force to address: Mother Nature. Though a loving, kind and beautiful power, her wrath is not to be dismissed. Are we listening?
