Catastrophic Cataclysm Continues
The worst fears for Japan have turned into irrevocable facts. More than ten thousand are dead and thousands more are missing. When disaster strikes a backwater like Haiti, we take some false comfort in the thought that the death toll was so high because of the primitive conditions in which Haitians were living before their earthquake struck. But that sense of security evaporates in an instant when we see an advanced First World, highly developed technological society brought low despite massive and extensive efforts to protect it. America, we are not immune, and now we must help Japan, prepare for our own day of testing, and most of all, pray.
