Slapping You Back Into Reality

Life has a way of slapping you back into reality.

Less than 24 hours ago I cursed Mother Nature for the second snowstorm in a month she dumped on the NYC area. I sneeringly mocked consumers who flooded supermarkets as if they were preparing for a nuclear fallout. I bitched and moaned about how my waist size would continue to expand as my daily jogging regiment was indefinitely postponed yet again by the weather. I even ranted and raved about the inevitable lack of parking spaces available because of the mountains of snow piled along the street curbs. All these complaints dominated my thoughts . . . that is until this morning when I scanned the news wires.

Early Saturday morning Chile was rocked by an incredible 8.8 earthquake. The quake, which according to the AP was one of the strongest ever recorded, was responsible for “toppling homes, collapsing bridges and plunging trucks into the fractured earth.” At least 147 people are dead and the quake’s one-minute long shake could be felt 1,800 miles away in Sao Paulo, Brazil. As I write this 1/3 of the globe is under a tsunami watch, including Hawaii and even California. 53 nations and territories are facing tsunami warnings (We have all seen enough video footage to know the devastation a tsunami is capable of inflicting)

And here I am complaining about some snow.

Don't I feel like a fool.

Need a PR Specialist? Perhaps my 13 years of PR experience can satisfy those needs. I have publicized world champions such as Lennox Lewis and Evander Holyfield, and mega-events like Lewis-Tyson and De la Hoya-Vargas.
