We're All in This Together

Today, as I watch the news reports about the earthquake in Japan and the subsequent tsunami, one of my core beliefs is reinforced yet again; we are all in this together.

The water that rose to treacherous levels on the other side of the globe, causing tides of mayhem and destruction, comes from the same ocean that, in turn, rose on our side of the globe.  The tsunami on the shores of San Fransisco was triggered by the same disaster which is taking its toll on the shores of Mexico.  People are suffering all over the world because we all have one thing in common; we're human.  We love, we grow attached to possessions, we hope, we fear. 

God did not draw lines within each continent, creating borders, fear, distrust, and selfishness. 

I wonder how big a disaster would have to be in order for countries to forget grudges and greed and unite together as human beings?
