A Real Disaster

Dictionary.com defines disaster as

noun
1.
a calamitous event, especially one occurring suddenly and causing great loss of 
life, damage, or hardship, as a flood, airplane crash, or business failure.


I can think of many thing in my lifeime that are without a doubt considered disasters. There have been terrorist attacks, floods, Tsunamis, volcanic eruptions, fires, train wrecks, hurricanes, blizzards, horrific car wrecks.....the list goes on.

On a personal level, we've gone through cancer, sepsis, the death of loved ones, pulmonary embolisms, the pain of losing a child, job loss, homelessness and many other things we considered disastrous to our lives.

But, which public bathroom we are able to use when out and about has not one time presented itself as a disaster; not even a small one.

Bruce Jenner, a grown man who likes to dress up like a woman, has called it a "disaster" that President Trump reversed former President Obama's public school bathroom policy. He said, "This is a disaster." Read the article here

Contrary to what Bruce Jenner thinks, this is not a disaster. This definition of disaster minimizes the real disasters people actually face in life. Bruce Jenner is very privileged. He gets the opportunity to pose all sanctimoniously while defending something stupid while he acts all righteous and firm as though he's standing on something important.

I can tell you one thing for sure: one day he will meet his Maker face to face. Then he will know what a personal disaster really is. 

Be not deceived, God is not mocked. (Galatians 6:7)
