it took me a few days to be able to write this. My knee-jerk reaction was to flip a url to a shock and awe news report full of questions and fear. I felt great sadness at the though of the fear of the people in the region and pain from their suffering. I don’t spend a lot of time in the consideration of religion but at these times it is impossible for me not to consider this and how religion or faith in many ways helps people in these situations cope with things beyond any terror they could have even imagined.
The Earth is a great and powerful thing flying through space at a tremendous rate and this earthquake was a result of tectonic forces resulting from it’s mass and this movement was the origin of the devastation.
That makes no difference to the person praying for their life.
What about the sudden urge to help and feel helpless in knot knowing how to do so that will truly make a difference.
I apologize for the confusion but I am still working through this.
