Fires Make Poignant Case for Action

My cousin’s dream home in Colorado's Black Forest burned down this week. The horrific images of a raging inferno 50 miles to the south suddenly fills me with personal sorrow for these relatives’ profound loss.  Memories of her young daughters frolicking  in the forest  flash before me, and then the unimaginable thought of  her having five minutes to gather the dogs and abandon decades of memories and possessions.

Then I started to get angry as well.
