We have unfortunately started 2020 with major environmental and natural catastrophes. Wildfires are causing destruction and environmental degradation in the country of Australia. Puerto Rico, still recovering from 2017's Hurricane Maria, was also hit by two major earthquakes in the last couple of days.
While we may be very far from both Puerto Rico and Australia, we must remain connected to each other's humanity.
