The hundreds of wildfires continue to darken the skies and pollute the air. From where we are, the clouds are dark and the surroundings are hazy. It smells smoke everywhere.

I placed our valuables such as passports in one bag just in case we had to evacuate. in an instant. It’s hard to sleep soundly at night. I fear that the wildfires could reach us overnight.

The wildfires have become more frequent and devastating in most recent years. I wonder what will happen to California ten, twenty, thirty years from now if every year thousands of acres and thousands of structures burned. What’s life here going to be like? How about animals? the wildlife, the people? And the centuries-old trees that are irreplaceable. Because of global warming, there wouldn’t be any more trees that will have the chance to live and grow for the next 100 years.
Watching the news, seeing whole mountains burning, makes me really concerned but this is a simple case of accepting things I cannot change. This is one of those moments when I wished I have superpowers. The power to protect the world from any kind of killer virus, wildfires. The power to save humans and animals from disasters.
Help us God. Please.
