Insensitivity Us More Vulnerable

A fiery sunset caused by forest fire smoke from California and local fires

“Humanity should not remain insensitive to the forest fire or wildfire every year. Unless we act, the loss of biodiversity and extinction of herbs, birds and animals and the pains of the trees, birds, animals and the poor is also alarming signal for the extinction of humanity itself.”

― Amit Ray, Nuclear Weapons Free World Peace on the Earth

Local forest fires and smoke blowing in from California created a ghostly sunset in Santa Fe, New Mexico last night. What extreme weather are you experiencing in your place on the planet now? What can each of us do during during a transitional season to do our part to protect the planet, and in doing so, protect ourselves?

Insensitivity to the pain we cause makes us all the more vulnerable.
