Christmas Island

Posted by ubpdqn on December 15, 2010

The tragic events off Christmas Island are a reminder of the fragility of existence.  The enormous struggle that confronts so many people in the world is a reality that is  hidden and the accumulating deaths uncounted. 

Even when counted, scale of human tragedies overwhelm to the point of rendering them invisible or more aptly incomprehensible. Stalin observed, “One Death is a Tragedy; a Million is a Statistic”. The unknown blogger, though abhorring the actions of the source,  sees some truth in the statement.  

May God rest the souls of those who lost their lives,… those  at Christmas Island, those dying from malnutrition, HIV, in the wars of all scales all over the earth whether combatants or civillian…ad infinitum.

One death is a tragedy…
