I'm sure we've all seen the terrible news of the earthquake in Haiti. Right now the casualty figures are nowhere close to accurate. I'm sure the numbers will be dreadful. On top of that, tropical storms are heading that way, to population already hurt by poverty and this latest natural disaster.
And while we're at it, pray for the people of Afghanistan. The Taliban, made famous for its brutal terrorist regime and knack for destroying ancient statues and monuments, won't get the same bad press now as before. We'll have America's bumbling to blame, but trashing the Taliban for destroying statues and memorials? Hello. Plus the media will do its level best to avoid pinning the disaster on Biden. So coverage will be two here and one there, but that doesn't mean on the ground that millions aren't about to suffer unimaginable horrors in the years to come.
There is much pain in the world. For many years, Americans considered ourselves blessed for being removed from such things as natural disasters capable of killing Americans by the tens of thousands, or brutal regimes of terror and slaughter.
Now we've convinced ourselves we deserve both, all while still being happily removed from such global catastrophes, even as many Americans consider such disasters our fault. So in hindsight, pray for the lives of those in Haiti and Afghanistan, but for heaven's sake, make sure you pray for Americans' souls.
