Tsunami and Earthquake in Japan
Those -- all shred to pieces and now lay on what was once rice fields and agricultural land, are shown, again and again the surviving members of this world. Devastation beyond belief! For many of us here in the U.S., the memories of Katrina is coming back. The same is true for those who live in the Pacific - thoughts of a similar one that struck them a few years ago. The present one may not be as strong as the tsunamis in Indonesia but the value of lives lost is the same!
Day two - and thousands of people have been confirmed dead. Like the Katrina flooding, and the Indonesian deadly waves, the Japan tsunamis really show us that we, humans, could not win against the fury of Mother nature. We are constantly being put to test, being constantly reminded of how vulnerable we all are! Perhaps because Mother Nature knows that, time and again, we can rebuild? Time and time again! And that time and time again, we are resilient - if we survive! We feel so humbled. For we know. We know that - no one can cross Mother Nature but herself!
There is nothing we can do in the meantime but pray and wait!
