WO: Weekly Obsessions
When I ask what more can we take, that isn’t a challenge to be smited, I swear. The firestorms ravaging Napa, Sonoma and Santa Rosa are nothing less than devastating.
Many are missing or dead; homes and buildings are decimated; and it’s another example of feeling helpless for our fellow residents.
It’s an odd feeling, no doubt one we’ve all had through the year’s many tragedies and natural disasters. I feel like I’ve run out of ways to express it, and it feels ignorant to post about anything else each week.
So, if you’re looking for how to help: Here’s what you can do. And if you’re local, please call ahead before visiting shelters — they’re often overwhelmed by drop-ins.
The unspeakable continues to happen, yet we have to talk about it. Here’s hoping there’s much better news to come soon.
