What a powerful editorial…the first paragraphs really stick with me.

I have family in Southern California. When there’s a big earthquake there, I worry a little, but not too much (the biggest disruption one of the last big one’s caused my relatives was my cousin’s disappointment that school was cancelled that day because there was an earthquake drill scheduled and he was supposed to ring the bell!) Point being, it is really awful that LA or San Francisco can take  a hit like this, but other places can’t. That is wrong wrong wrong.
