Except for those caused by climate change, disasters eMail Me 10/12/17
are no more prevalent than they have ever been. Now
that everyone that has a cell phone can become a
recorder/reporter of disasters and the urge of the
media is to rush to the worst and show it to us,
disasters seem to be getting worse. Historical record
shows that disasters in the past were far more deadly
than the ones that occur today. The best protection
to from disaster is to not live in a disaster prone area.
But disasters can occur anywhere, so there is no place
that is entirely safe. Insurance will allay the financial
cost, but only mental strength will overcome the human cost.
More people are killed by lightning than any other natural
source every year. Illness and old age kill everyone
eventually. Best to live life to the fullest while we can.
