What's In a Name?
We sat down today with a good friend named Karen…….the name of the most recent tropical storm predicted to hit the Bahamas and Florida, and possibly other southern states sometime today, Friday, September 27, 2019. Here’s what Karen had to say: “Well, I’m actually rather sad having the same name as a tropical storm, because I already feel for all the people who will be affected by this storm. Ironically, the name Karen means pure and joyful. There doesn’t seem like much joy will be spread if this storm hits land, and although it may wreak pure havoc, it certainly takes the meaning of the name in a different direction! My Mother is Danish, and Karen is a name of Danish origin. It’s rather ironic, because my Mom grew up on the coast with my Grandfather being a fisherman. This type of storm is certainly something they would not be happy to see, although in Denmark, we luckily do not get many storms like this. My hope is that the storm somehow misses landfall and that tropical storm Karen is quickly forgotten!”
