Has America been jinxed?
When hurricane Katrina hit the US shores and things started to become really desperate and pictures of disasters similar to those seen in the Third World were beamed into our living rooms, a strange idea furtively crossed my mind. I jotted it down as an idea for a post then somehow forgot about it plus it was inappropriate to talk like this when people where dying. However, today when I read Tareq's blog and saw this caption , I think it is high time I expose my theory.
I shall be brief, from the face of things it looks like Bush's presidency has been an extremely bad omen for the USA.
Bear with me :
(1) a few months after he is sworn in for his first term in 2001, 9/11 strikes ,
(2) then almost the same interval passes after he is sworn in the second time in 2005 and Katrina strikes.
Now that is what I call a curse and a disaster to the United States. I have nothing against the man in person, but hey if I was a US citizen with all the choices that a democracy entitles me to, I would make sure he leaves the office ASAP. We would not want another disaster would we?because believe me usually these things come in three. We had (1) and (2) , I do not want to see (3) ! as there are too many people I care about in the US .
I'm not usually superstitious but this is too much, something should be done. ..what do you think ?
My prayers go today again to all the victims of violent death in the world. Amen
