I realized this because it's raining since Thursday now, and didn't stop. Now streets start to flood, small villages that are low have rivers as streets, Nothing very dangerous really, no death or wounded. Just misery.
I compare to what I've seen irl, the effects of the massive flooding in Southern Africa, in 1999, the remains of the eruption of Mount Pinatubo, in the Philippines, somewhere in the nineties. Those, I've witnessed first hand.
But TV brings all these images right into our living room. Thousands of deaths, right there in my living room. Life cholera in Haiti, floods in Pakistan, any disaster you can imagine.
It's creepy. I could never imagine there are so many emergencies at the same time. Right now.
Check it out here.
I'll focus at here and now. The world is too big to be my concern in all it's details.
