Islands and the Sea

            The radio announces a story about the islands of Kiribati, its people anxious as they watch the sea levels rise around them, spill into their dominion. The coral reefs die, the water approaches, they try to hold it back with granite boulders. But "water wins" is one of my mottoes. These small islands are the canary in the coal mine, their anxiety the herald of things to come. I should go there with my camera and document it or find others who are. This is a story we should all be watching.
