Sometimes we forget how small and powerless we’re really are in the face of elements. Sometimes some higher power taps us on the shoulder, to remind us exactly of that. How fragile and so short-timed our lives really, really are.
Then and there, all our arrogance, all our importance are put in the rightful place. My heart goes out to the people of Madeira. I pray that you may find, as quickly as is humanly possible, the necessary strength and resilience to overcome this enormous tragedy.
