Who gets the blame?

My fortune cookie read:
“No snowflake in an avalanche
ever feels responsible,”
a wise saying at a tough time
as the wind blows troubles
in my direction,
and evil things stir
in warm places
I always thought safe,
An my uncle
Who was a carpenter
Told his own fortunes
Those days I worked
At his side
“If someone hits you
in the head with a hammer,
don’t blame the hammer.”
