Days of future past?

Days of future past?

Yes, this is what's on our minds

Yesterday, I had CNN on with the sound muted while doing household chores. Before realizing what was being shown, I caught strikingly apocalyptic images of the Northern California firestorm out of the corner of my eye. For a split second, a deep dark dread came over me, and the first thing that popped into my mind was “Oh my god…he’s really done it. He has actually started World War 3.”

Seriously.

Why would I even think that? I’m a somewhat rational person.

Hiroshima aftermath, August 1945
Napa fire aftermath, October 2017

Paranoia…or a premonition? I guess that’s where we are right now.
