Grace of God

Just heard a quote from the president of america on Haiti:

"But for the grace of God, there we go."

I'm not quite sure what this means, but what really baffles me is how these people can so misunderstand the nature of reality as to think that somehow natural disasters are lapses in God's grace. I'm starting to think that I don't really have such a problem with God himself as I do with these silly people who blatantly abuse the word.

    the people in Haiti are hurting and people don't understand why they don't have the same fate as people in the USA, and people don't know about karma here and in their cultural language that's all they know to say how they empathize with the suffering, and really we are all interconnected and we are suffering along with the Haitians. that saying means i could be usAll too, and we are all together in the suffering.

    ask yourself, who are 'these people' and who are 'these silly people'? look deeply and you may grow in compassion.
