Disaster strikes for a reason. We must keep hope as well as faith in adversity. But we must always try to find root cause and solve them. If a recurring problem exists, something must be stubborn to change and we must change that stubbornness.
The mishap is senseless, but the cause for terror has a reason. It’s recurring every now and then. We need to be vigilant.

Add: You know, peace isn’t hard to keep. What is hard to keep is the complexity of minds that go haywire that results from being intolerant. Some people have less threshold for tolerance. Some, more. If you hit those with big hearts, fine. If you happen to meet those with small minds, you are good to get blasted on a land mind. In several ways, the way of being simple or even simplistic may save trouble. At rare times, knowing nothing is better than being over sensitive about many issues. To be too smart is often the cause for trouble. — Karen Fu

Charlie Chaplin is not just a great comedian, he is a great humanist. Don’t think I need to write anything as I paste the video here for your viewing pleasure. This video has some of the most pertinent issues for us to reflect on what have been done and are still continuing.

Am Facebooking and reading off feeds and comments along with skim reading other online notes and emails.
I cannot help but to post this quick thought that has come to me instantly:
For those who have Faiths, please do not think your Lord, your Buddha, you Allah, your God are deceivable. For those who have no Faith, there is still a force that you may yet to find but is looking over you. Just that you are not quiet enough to understand it, doesn’t mean the true heart of doing a certain thing cannot be seen.
Being true isn’t hard to do. Do not waste time thinking you can bend rules to get your way. Doing this in front to look good and bend it over to do something. It doesnt work that way. Some people donate money for good causes but do something hideous behind, thinking the charity will cancel off the negative karma of doing bad. My advise: don’t even think about playing tricks. It never pays in the end, ‘cos you don’t call your Lord anything else as they have the highest form of power that you cannot fathom.
I am a free thinker even at this point. I do so because I think this will free me up to mix with everyone. I believe that any positive religions will accommodate very similar, if not the same principles of what is obeying the Lord. And that is not to exploit anyone’s kindness for your own greed. That’s just one point. The point that I often read off news about certain people defying their Faith to do hideous crimes makes me often wonder what kind of people we have today. It may sound religious, but at times I can’t help but to think the natural disasters that we have are indeed the Lord’s way of teaching unfaithful people a lesson.
Hopefully people will be awakened. And that the power of advanced technology and science has little to do with solving actual problems. Often I think the backward movement of technology may well save our lives in many ways. It’s a huge change to flip over. I suppose people want the high tech to show ones prowess and might. Then thinking back again, it may well be a sign of self destruction going by the way how certain people are bending rules these days. – Karen Fu
