Lessons to be learned
I'm watching live broadcasts from Louisiana. You can see it at
WWL TV. I'm watching people who have never had much and have now lost everything. They speak to reporters and tell them their stories of how they survived the storm and the rising waters. All they have left now is the shirts on their backs, and yet they speak of G-d's mercy. "By the grace of G-d I had some space to breath in before help come and get me." "G-d showed us mercy" and so on.
הלומד מכל אדם I guess would apply here too.
Would we be so thankful if G-d forbid it would happen to us? I don't mean Chas Vesholom to speak ill of our brothers and sisters, but we need to learn a lesson in life from the survivors of Katrina.
