The Japan earthquake and tsunami managed to bring tears to my eyes. It is terrible to see the amount of damage…to humans, to property, to the landscape…to lives…and it will take ages to restore some sense of normalcy. Life as they knew it before this disaster is lost forever for all the affected people…those who are still alive. :(
Call me weird or naïve or stupid or un-informed or anything, but I really believe that we humans have managed to bring things to such a level where Nature has to act to restore the balance. How else does one explain the rise in the frequency of natural disasters and the increased intensity of the damage they cause each time they occur ?
The uncontrolled population increase over the centuries itself has been responsible in robbing the Earth of its natural resources. Add to it the greed of humans…we can’t take just as much as we need…we have to take more and hoard. We don’t think of preservation, of regeneration or of repaying what was taken. We cross the rational limits of progress where progress becomes harmful to the world we inhabit; And, on top of it all, we are stupid enough not to realise that this is the only home we know and our actions are gradually destroying it.
Ours is the species that should become extinct. Seriously !
