This has to stop. Too many lives have been claimed, too many families have been broken and shattered forever. All these fireworks leave us with is an increasing number of widows and fatherless children. And lifelong scars. Why? When are we going to learn that this is an unnatural thing? Why should feasts be celebrated this way? Why is it that even though we know that this has actually claimed life, it is in our very human nature to think that others can die except us. But we're wrong !!! Death looks at no faces, places, and races. It comes and it goes. It never stops its journey.
Now we will be faced with leaders saying how sorry they are and all that usual crap and life will go on just the same. I'm more than sure that even while I'm writing, some other idiot is in some fireworks factory thinking that everybody can die (of course) bar him. How stupid !!! How sad !!! How pathetic !!! How selfish !!! How immature !!!
This has to stop. It is having a negative long term effect on society in general as well. Children are being brought up without their fathers for starters and denied that which by nature ought to be theirs. Of course, fathers die due to illness and that is part of life, but to deliberately work in such places when you have a family (even if you don't) .... it just sounds like suicide to me .... nothing else, and just like suicide it is ultimate selfishness. These children's life will have to change now of course and they might not also be given the opportunities they could have had, had their fathers thought of them more than the bloody feast they paganly celebrate.
Anyway, fingers crossed something happens. Laws have to be changed. It just cannot carry on. We need to realise that death is final and irreversible !!! We need to realise that yes, it can happen to all of us. We need to realise that idolatory has always rubbed God the wrong way !!!!
