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.
