I am not saying ANY country is being punished for these actions, what I am saying is how small we are in the scheme of things, how powerless we really are against things.
Skyhooks really got it right, when they sang, it is a horror movie, the 6.30 news. A real story of horror!
As I watched the Tsunami the other night it could have been taken as something that didn't really look real, again because I think we as a race have been desensitized by television and movies, kids think the dead guys always get up and bad things are really not that bad because there is always a winner at the end of the show... well the news isn't make believe and how the hell do we as a race help find the winners at the end of the show... one thing that this has reinforced for me is - we may all look different, our skin maybe a different colour and we may not speak the same language, but we all sound the same when we scream, feel terror and loss the same gut wrenching way - and our tears all taste the same when we cry for you in Japan and Christchurch.
No matter what your spiritual belief, I hope that you will put your faith with mine, in asking/praying to the Deities for relief and comfort to those suffering the horrors still unfolding in Japan, and those still coming to terms with their loss in Christchurch also.
