I hope they can find something. The title is accurate. Triple whammy. And like most natural disasters, they never saw it coming. It’s really sad. The earthquake itself was devastating, but the tsunami that followed? I heard on the radio this morning, 1000 bodies have washed ashore. I really need to turn off the radio on my way to work. Gruesome and tragic. And the nuclear plant that may meltdown? How are they going to deal with that as well? I hope the sea water cools it down.
Those near the epicenter of the earthquake said it felt like the end of the world. Literally. Even though I’m one of those “I’m spiritual, not religious” people, I do believe we are in the End Times. It doesn’t depress me at all. I’ve been pretty fatalistic and negative for as long as I can remember. I’m not a glass half empty kind of person. I’m the empty with a crack kind.
I hope the Mayan prediction of 2012 comes true. My faith in humanity was lost long ago, and it continues to tank (even below zero). We’ve raped this planet (i.e., garbage gyres in the oceans, floating polar bears). We brutally torture and kill each other and not just during war time (i.e., Zaire/Congo, heinous crimes that are reported all the time). And then there are those who have no trouble torturing and killing animals, God’s innocent creatures.
I hope we are ushering in the apocalypse. It’s selfish to wish for it, but I don’t care. At all. It probably won’t happen anyway.
But I still want it to happen. 2012? Asteroid? Pole shift? Nuclear winter? Bring it on.
It’s the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine.
