“The World is a Ghetto”
I almost hate to watch the news these days. But in some peculiar way, I need to know what’s going on around the world.
For the first time I felt like the human ant that I am - when my cousin asked, “Why do you watch and listen to the news? Other than lamenting, you can’t do anything” about:
The Volcano in Spain’s La Palma, raging on since mid-September, now spewing hot lava into the Atlantic Ocean
The recent Indonesia volcano eruption
The decimation of the Amazon Rainforest (oh my God, our lungs)
The interesting habit of man’s inhumanity to man, such as Ethiopia’s conflict causing a growing hunger emergency
The mining of Cobalt in the Congo to fuel electric cars and other electronics. The find should’ve made ALL its people well off. Oh AFRICA!
Right about here my husband would ask, “Any good news?”
I think this is a perfect time to soothe my soul the best way I know how.
