When I watch the news and see crises unfold, I often wonder about human nature. It seems that crises can bring out the worst or the best in people. Reports of natural disasters often show harrowing tales of survival and the depth and complexity of the human spirit. My heart is warmed when I witness survivors coming together to share, and give love and compassion to their neighbors. These same reports can also show how disaster can bring out the worst in people. Unfortunately, scarcity and fear sometimes takes over and people behave terribly toward one another.
I like to believe, that in any emergency situation, everyone will dig deeply into themselves and remember that people need each other. Sharing love, kindness, compassion, acceptance, and forgiveness is essential to the survival of human kind. I like to think that if dragons do attack, people will come together so that we will be sure to survive.
