Every morning I watch the weather channel. I use the forecast to get an idea of how I should dress my son for school. I plant my eyes on the right side of the map, just around the Atlantic region. I figure, I'm from Maryland, why bother checking the weather in other regions? I have never been so wrong in my life.
Watching the news, you see the horrific stories of how a town was hit by a tornado, another city is shook by an earthquake, and a state is consumed swiftly by a wildfire. Your immediate reaction is, or at least the thought crosses your mind, "I'm glad it wasn't me." As selfish as this may seem, we've all retained a thought like that. But, as soon as we speak those words and begin to thank a higher being for skipping over our area, we are undoubtedly ignoring a sense of community.
