What is it about disasters that we have a kind of morbid fascination? Each time there is a natural disaster of sorts, I will be glued to the TV or to the news online, feverishly reading updates.
It’s no different with Haiti, although this morning, I wondered why I’m so morbidly fascinated with natural disasters. Do I read it with hopes that things will get better? Are natural disasters a reminder of my own fleeting mortality or how lucky I am, that despite how difficult my life can be, I am alive, I breathe, I walk, I have food on the table and my family is alive and well.
This year, part of my many resolutions is to criticize less, act now and give more.
