Look on the bright side

Little can ease the suffering or stem the pain over lives lost and careers halted,  but human nature is every bit as resilient and courageous as mother Earth, and we are simply awed by what we see unfolding. 

On the very bright side,  never in peacetime history has there been such a gallant effort, by so many people, spending so many billions of dollars with no end in sight, to rapidly clean up our environment.

Never before have numerous heads of state and representatives of a corporation as large as many smaller nations, pledged to work together, sharing expertise and resources to get a job done.

Never before have so many prayer and meditation groups suddenly formed, amongst and in between every religion and those belonging to none, to foster healing of our precious planet.

Never before have finger pointers, conspiracy theorists, and blame mongers been so idle and unnecessary in the face of such a tragedy.

Never before have industry titans across every sea chosen to reexamine their own safety procedures, revisit their own environmental safeguards, and expand their own fortunes to voluntarily reflect upon and demand that they do an even better job from this day forward.

And to top it all off, our planet has countless balancing acts, and healing herself is one in which she truly shines.
