CURRENT EVENTS TRAVEL
Volcanoes, Bombings, and Hurricanes.
I am cynical way too many days of my life.
When I watch BBC or CNN I get this gut level feeling.
Or my “Bullshit Meter” goes off….
Beep…. Beep…. Beep…. Gong.
That was bullshit.
Resonates in my head.
I think they are purposely distorting and
mis-representing the story….
But here I am. Sitting here on this side of the planet
and they have this reporter with a microphone looking
serious and telling me this story from their side
of the planet. It would be pretty arrogant for me to sit
here and say they are lying.
Well, so be it.
I am arrogant.
Although, I have had some experiences that make me
this way. I have sat in a room. Watching the television and
suddenly BBC does this story. They start telling me about
this event… “Current Event” that is in process or occurred the
day before. My ears perk up, and I pay attention, trying catch
the odd detail that tells me exactly where this happened.
Than I realized, that they are talking about my present location.
I think to myself,
“funny, I am here, and that was nothing, where
did they come up with that?.”
But the story has made the stupid, into the stupendous.
I entered Ecuador just days after they had a military
coup. Protest in Peru. Volcanoes in Nicaragua,
Ecuador. Narco Traffickers blew up the road from
Bogotá to Medellin Colombia.
I was in Malaysia when there was the bombing in Bali.
In Chapis Mexico 25 Indians was killed.
I was very close. It was possible to get on a bus
and go the location. On this small planet that is
the third rock from the sun we now have forms of
transportation that can shoot you from one side to the
other side in less than 24 hours.
I tell my friends and family,
“Relax, If I need to come home, I am only 24 hours
away from anywhere on the planet.”
But that means that you are also only 24 hours away
from any “Current Event.”
So, my advice, and recommendation is that the next
time you are watching the TV and a volcano is erupting
or they are having the running of the bulls in Spain.
Say to yourself, or your spouse,
“Lets go see for ourselves!”
