Letter: Getting in nature’s way

Getting in nature’s way

One day a person may be able to write about how wonderful it is to live in our world today.

That is wishful thinking and still invisible on the horizon. Sadly mankind will never ever control nature, in my opinion, but will continue to hinder and harass her.

Flooding so close to home is heartbreaking for some people, but on the worldly scale of devastation local flooding may be rated as an oversized thimble full that would never make it in the top 10 list of disasters.

It may be a little too late to use the words “acts of nature may get worse before they get better” and mankind needs a lot of luck for change as Mother Nature is really pissed off with the caretaker God selected.

Perhaps President Trump and his wish to make America great again will have to fire the kind of mankind who keeping throwing the screws in natures way?
