    God saves people in Houston

    I'm watching the news and hearing these people who have lost everything thanking God for saving them. Where the hell was God when everything was being destroyed?

    I'm pretty agnostic and envy people who really believe.
    Me......I think holding your teddy bear or hugging a security blanket is the same thing.

    ZING!

    But, you are exactly correct.

    Let's treat these victims with kindness, not mock them for their beliefs.

    What's so rational about mocking people who are already suffering?

    And I think superstition is part of it. When I make speeches I wear my good luck earrings. Someone would thank god for the good speech, I thank my earrings.

    Oh my god, I didn't realize they heard me. I will apologize to each one personally.
    It was just an observation.....but if they are all reading this, I apologize....(I'm not mocking them. I'm mocking you)
