I was not about to blog about the tornado in Oklahoma, I found it, just like yesterday's massacre in London, way too depressing to write on. I know I write about very serious stuff sometimes, controversial stuff too, it is just that I am not particularly in the mood for such things right now. But I learned something today on Richard Hétu's blog that cheered me up. Wolf Blitzer was intervieweing a tornado survivor (and her cute toddler son) and asked if she thanked the Lord for surviving the tornado. She answered she was an atheist. And I don't know why exactly, but it really gave me hope for the future of mankind. This simple coming out of a mum holding her young child in her arms, the child all happy and cheerful. In your face, Wolf Blitzer! A smart answer to a stupid question. I guess I am happy because this child is alive and well, and cheerful, and to know that he will grow up surrounded by loving, free thinking, secularist parents.
