If I stop to think about the tremendous need in the world, I get overwhelmed in about five seconds (or less). And, as a person with depression, that is NOT a good thing. I start thinking (and that in and of itself is a scary thought), “Wow! I wonder how I could help?”
The natural disaster that’s currently on my mind is the flooding in and near Nashville, Tennessee. I haven’t been there since the flooding, so I don’t have any personal pictures. However, there are plenty of them around the Internet.
The not-so-natural disaster that’s on my mind is the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Again, I have no personal pictures, but you can find many if you look.
Since I have no personal pictures of these two recent disasters, I wanted to share the pictures that I do have. (I took all three of the following pictures.) The second is hardly worth mentioning, but it’s a disaster nonetheless.
In the midst of natural disasters…
and not-so-natural disasters…
…life goes on.
