I can clearly see and feel the moment in my life when I realized just how vulnerable I was to the terrors of the world. I was surrounded by a soggy earth riddled with fallen trees and rush waters. It was the aftermath of a hurricane that battered my community. Outside my four walls was war zone. In stark contrast I watched my beautiful wife cradle my newborn son. He was about 1 month old at the time.
Two massive oak trees had fallen in the road and blocked our route out of the neighborhood. We were low on diapers and formula. We were week to week shoppers and lost everything in our fridge. Thankfully no one was hurt but in my quiet moments I realized the failure in my inactions. I was made completely aware of just how unprepared I was.
