An Evacuee's Teaching

This was in the morning Inquirer. With over 500,000 fleeing from the fires in San Diego and environs, many people are balancing the material with the transcendent.

In nearby Escondido, Susan Healey returned after two days with friends to a house unscathed except for heavy soot in the swimming pool.

"I don't think after something like this you're ever not different," the middle-school teacher said. "I had two days to think about, what are the most important things in my house? And they all fit in my car. I realize now how much junk I have."

This couldn't have been stated any better. It's the ultimate reality check!
