It sickens me to think that someone purposely set the fires in Western NC this last month. They were so close to my sister’s house, she could almost feel the heat off them. And to think, it was just some bored teenagers.

According to the news, two teens walked through the forest tossing matches. Did they even care that the forest’s animals would be left without a home, if they made it out of the fire at all? Did they care that the fires could have spread to people’s homes and killed them? Did they want animals and people to suffer?

Who ever knows what a person is thinking. It’s so hard this day and age to get children to understand that their decisions have a snowball effect. In this case, they had a wildfire effect. What the teens did spread from them, out into the world, and created catastrophe.

Kids, your actions have a reaction. Think before you act. Ten seconds of thinking at a time like that could literally change your world.

  1. Such a great post & reminder.
    We just went through some wild fires near our home this summer. Loss of animals & homes, evacuations, all due to a woman in her 50s setting them. It’s so hard to understand. When kids play around with fire accidentally starting fires but when an adult purposely sets them, it makes you wonder. Obviously she has horrible issues. It’s sad all the way around.
    We lost our store in an earthquake in 2003 around this time of year. My heart has been changed forever now, when hearing about people going through natural disasters. I understand their fear and how quickly life can change for all of us. I always have to stop and pray. I know that feeling when your world has stopped while others in other places still seem to be living theirs. Before, it seemed so far away and removed. Now, not so much. God bless us everyone.
