Unnatural devastation

More than 18,000 people are believed dead in Pakistan alone from a deadly earthquake in South Asia on Saturday. Meanwhile, more than 1,400 have died in Central America from mudslides and flooding related to Hurricane Stan, which hit Mexico on Tuesday.

They're both terrible tragedies that remind us just how easily nature can rip normality from humanity's tenuous grasp. To say the last year has been filled with such reminders would be an understatement.
