Attack of the Tsunami: All the World to the Rescue

I am touched.

So very touched by the humanity of it all. So many countries combining efforts to rescue and protect. All of them working together to defeat the destructiveness of Mother Nature after it struck with such cataclysmic magnitudes. Who do they have but each other, all the good people of all the good countries of the world, when disaster rears its ugly head, and thousands upon thousands of innocent men, women and children inescapably meet a fate oh so tragic and a pain oh so grand.

Oh how touched I am. Really. Because, come to think of it, no one and nothing is allowed to dispose of human lives but humans themselves. If Tsunamis and earthquakes think they have power over humanity, humanity will show them natural disasters, one human at a time, that I, all powerful human being, have claim over who shall live and who shall die, what shall be built and what shall be destroyed.

Let it be clear to all things animate and inanimate. WE rule the Planet. WE decide of Life and Death, Sickness and Health, Power and Despair, Freedom and Servitude. We kill and revive. We bless and damn. We judge. We act. We control.


Soon the global effort for relief will be over, seismic sensors will be implanted all over the bottom of the ocean, as soon as the dead are buried, the sick are treated and the displaced are given a shelter, human life shall go back to its normal daily routine. People will go back to killing other people, and nations will go back to exterminating other nations, as it has been and should always be. And will always be.

Tsunami or no Tsunami, humanity shall prevail.

It is our destiny. It will be fulfilled.
