Here we go again

1 Sep 2005

Two tragedies today: the natural disaster in New Orleans. I will say a prayer tonight for all the homeless and again wonder at the power of nature - pure and magnificent when strewn on flowers and landscapes and yet so cruel and unyeilding in natural disasters. God bless you all and may you find the aid you need very very soon.

How come the poor get such a bum deal? I watched the news today about this on a couple of channels. What an eye opener. America is such a rich and prosperous and free nation. I'm sorry to say this but those poor bastards didn't look that free to me (even before the storm I mean). One statistic said that one of the hardest hit neighbourhoods had 25% of the population living under the poverty line. So, not only has society left them behind, nature has come along and kicked them while they're down.

This post is a bit confused - my point is this: the hurricane was awful.

Tragedy 2: Baghdad: At least 965 people were confirmed to have died on Wednesday when thousands of Shi'ite pilgrims taking part in a religious festival rushed for imagined safety on to a bridge across the Tigris in Baghdad, only to die in the river below or be crushed on the roadway.

Somebody created a rumour that there was a suicide bomber in the crowd and they just stampeded, mowing down anyone in their way. Unfortunately, many of these were women and children.

Not a good day.
