The Gentle Rain

Until now the summer in London has been hot and fine but today there is a cold rain in August which will be followed by a cold wind in August. The weather of London is not the worst problem in the world, but of course the things that affect us most immediately are the things that grab our attention. It is caused by the remnants of a Floridian hurricane; natuer shaped little by the hand of man.

If I lived in Gaza I would fear bombs, not wind, and if I lived in Iraq I would fear death not just by bombs but also by bullets and beheading. These events are shaped by the ambition and greed of humanity.

The rain is gentle, even the heaviest rain.  Humanity is unforgiving, ruthless and harsh.
