Early spring flowers are blooming already, some flowering trees have begun to bloom, God's magnificent creation is starting to come alive and it's a feast for the senses!
But there are some serious matters to ponder. Let's hope future generations find the solutions that we might need. An article in today's New York Times, ("Sea Level Rise Seen As Threat to 3.7 Million"), states that "About 3.7 million Americans live within a few feet of high tide and risk being hit by more frequent coastal flooding in coming decades because of the sea level rise caused by global warming.....By far the most vulnerable state is Florida, the new analysis found........but Louisiana, California, New York and New Jersey are also particularly vulnerable...."
We should be concerned for the sake of the next generation.
I recently went on vacation in Florida. It is a beautiful state. I was speaking to someone who lived there, she worked in the hotel. She said something interesting to me. "It's so beautiful here', she said, "but people say it's not going to last." In her circle of friends and family, that is what they say. Strange, I thought.
Let's hope and pray for the best. Let's hope the future geniuses of the world get us out of this mess, if it turns out that global warming is a fact, which seems to be the case.
