Mother Nature can be a cruel mistress at times, while men argue over the actions of others and squabble over rules made by other men, she takes more direct action in her protests with tragic consequences. She screams at the way her skin has been scarred by our drills and diggers, the wounds inflicted deep into her soul, we have even desecrated the very air she gave us to breathe with pollution, one might even at times think she is vengeful as she claims her sacrifices.
But when the fires have been quenched and the dust settles, it will not just be mourning for the dead that takes place…
There will be stories of miracles and heroism, of those who reached out to give when they themselves had lost it all…
There will be the reaffirmation of life which can only be appreciated when death has walked in the shadows…
And for a brief time people will remember that the material possessions in this world can be replaced, and that all that really matters is the health and safety of those we love, wealth and comfort are nice to have but it is only when you lose everything you realise what has true value.
