How should we respond to catastrophes?

Ever since the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake, the catastrophes are just getting more frequent and more severe. I donate money to these affected place but I always think to myself that very shortly, this is going to be happening to us too. It has become a routine. It doesn’t have to be an earthquake, see what happened in the Middle East: it was protests triggered by humans. It can be anything: a plague, return of the dinosaurs, alien visits, death of the sun, nuclear plants leaking (all at once) etc.

How does it all end? They are all saying the same story. In the end, catastrophes end the lives of inhabitants of the planet and all those who ever lived will experience some form of judgement, in which the destination of a human’s soul is declared.

How should I react to Japan’s earthquake? I know within months another catastrophic event will hit us. Should we do it all over again? Should we just pour money out of our pockets, helplessly? Don’t you think there is another cause to this? What is the root cause of all these catastrophes? Are we going to think of the bigger picture or just declare these catastrophes as causes of global warming and sit down with our hands tied? We are not thinking collectively. Perhaps when one day our planet is visited by aliens, we will finally think as a collective group. I like to think that we will.

My deepest condolences for victims of Japan’s Earthquake. We can donate here.
