The Wrath of Nature Must be Equated by Humanity's Resolve to Continuity

The wrath of nature and its untamable power were witnessed in Sunday's night deadly 7.3 magnitude-earthquake along Iran's western border with Iraq.

That 540 people have been killed, 8,000 injured and that 12,000 homes have collapsed sending thousands of people out into freezing temperatures, affirms the magnitude of the Iranian catastrophe.

Yet, as Iran mourns its dead and tends its injured as surviving victims yearn for faster relief, it is the resolve for continuity that will champion the Iranian people over this natural disaster - the said resolve that has enabled the sustaination of life on Planet Earth from prior disasters and conflicts.

The human resolve for continuity has been tested and fractured often. But possessing a strong inclination to live, humankind will continue to rise out of the rubble of buildings fell in earthquakes, over the ashes of conflicts, onto the dry ground away from floods and alee of the gales of hurricanes. Humanity will often find a way to adapt and to cope with tragedies. The wrath of nature must always be equated by humanity's resolve to continuity.

So as our prayers continue for the people of Iran and Iraq that they find relief and comfort from the devastating earthquake, humanity is hereby reminded that all inhabitants, on Planet Earth, are susceptible today or tomorrow to the wrath of nature with the understanding that that which has effected a distant people yesterday, could very likely affect a close friend today, or oneself tomorrow.
