WORLD OF DANGERS

Problem

Our world is less safe today than it has been in a very long time and things appear to have gotten worse this summer.

Take a hard look at events around the nation and our world only to see we're facing dangers of many fronts. It used to be that our dangers were limited to extreme heat, flooding, lightning strikes...etc.

At home: We have seen unprecedented dangers near the US border and in the Midwest region. Whopping weather woes, including fires and a severe drought. Our political system appears to be broken.
