I am grateful that my family was spared, of course.
Forcing myself to keep the survivors constantly on my mind in order to empathize with them!
Also (even at my age) believing in the future and expecting a good life for this world! Oddly - perhaps - realizing that evil exists and has to be acknowledged; thus - our need to also realize that Almighty God exists and wants to be acknowledged! Perhaps (actually I hope such) we will ALL intently grow nearer to God!
My life, and our lives, will change immediately. In our travels, we may be more suspicious. We will endure (willingly, I trust) many more checks - exams - questions - searches. We may face another war (I doubt it). We may have economic scares - oil shortages - travel restrictions - limited freedoms. I realize the potential for all this and I am determined to accept what I must with a cooperative attitude.
An aside, if I may: Several have stated that this is a "punishment from God" (in so many words). God is love - and rather than think that - we should turn our sincere prayers to God and His love for all.
