      We're entering bumpy times. Even though this is very negative we have to look for the positive.

      Take the Sumatra quake - awful event, but the positive was an outpouring of support and helping those in need.

      It's just that we need to get to a point where we help each other as a regular occurrence without much thought if any in absence of a great tragedy.

      If we get to this point then the world will be much more peaceful and as a species our consciousness will go up a few notches.
