Whatever conclusion we, as human beings, draw from this disaster; final words must be those of gratitude and hope.
Blessed be the rescuers from all over the world, the rescue teams the doctors, and nurses, the members of the aid organizations, giving food, cover and care in dire conditions. Blessed be the soldiers defending against the rage of despair, blessed be the engineers clearing roads and pathway, removing traps that caught the helpless, blessed be the donors. For they have shown us that within us there is the human brotherhood and strength of the spirit and the resourcefulness of the minds to stem and overcome the horrors and despair that are befalling on us from time to time.
And Blessed be the Lord, Amen Selah
