#117 when earth shook

He cried when the earth shook

schools, hospitals and homes turn to rubble

burying the living

roads inaccessible.

In helplessness,

man dropped his differences and ego

to help the devastated.

Courage found in victims to start afresh…

He cried when his wife left him

the innocent 15-month-old son

a stamp of their short-gun marriage

causing a deeper earthquake

in life.

Most interesting! I received this sms on the recent happenings in China — when adding the single numerics, they all add up to 08.

  • On Jan 25, the snowstorm preventing many from returning home for family reunion at the Spring festival celebration — mother nature from the sky (天灾):   1+2+5= 8
  • Mar 14, human rights groups gathered in protest about Tibet during the Olympic Torch Relay — man (人huo):   3+1+4 = 8
  • May 12, the 7.9 richter scale earthquake in Sichuan — mother nature under the earth (地 zhen):    5+1+2 = 8

Coincidence? hahahaha…

The Olympic Games will be held in Beijing on August 8th, 2008:  080808!

What IS human rights?

What is man entitled to on earth? What is man entitled to born in one’s country?

Is this not man’s right — to be able to bring food to the table and feed his family and a roof over his head? Providing for his family builds his dignity and being.

Is this not what the present lot of the Chinese leaders are trying to do? (I’d be accused for being naive…am I?)

Is economic success not the road to free man’s plight of poverty and repression?

Is politics or boycotts the way to building man’s dignity today? Talk is cheap. Everyone can offer ideas but… Only those able to translate and implement to bring peace and prosperity have a say…

The only one action for any governing leaders today is to create jobs for a man to feed his family and a roof over his head!
