Thoughts regarding recent news about Guam


As of late, Guam has been ALL over the news. I was at work and received a text from a friend saying she read about Guam on CNN and if my family is OK. A few minutes later, a co-worker walks over and asks me the same thing. I was at dinner, and the tv was on, and the newscaster brought up Guam yet again. Just this evening as I launched Safari, Yahoo news showed: Trump congratulates Calvo because tourism will double through all this media attention. So, yes, Guam has been receiving an abundance of attention.

But, in reality, life goes on in that little island. My mom will continue rearranging her plants in front of the house, my brothers will continue to go to work everyday, and the kids will resume school after summer break.

There’s really no point in panicking. What can panicking do for you? Also, as far as evacuating…where would they run to? Its a small island.

Sometimes, the media portrays things in extremes. And, sometimes its all a gimmick.

To my fam and friends in Guam…I love you and I know this too will pass.
