Gratitude and Empathy in the Face of Tragedy

Heaven High and Happy Monday!

How are you feeling on this Monday?

I’m sure that by now you’ve heard about the tragedy in Nepal; the massive earthquake that hit Nepal on Saturday has rocked the whole world. As of this morning, the death toll has risen to over 3,000 people. More than 200 climbers have been rescued around Mount Everest and were able to avoid the avalanches that were cause by the 7.8 earthquake.

If you haven’t seen the footage, this video from BBC should catch you up:

Tragedies like this one, make us to realize just how lucky we are and in that moment of gratitude and thoughtfulness, an urgent feeling of compassion and empathy arise in us. I don’t know about you but I always feel the need to aid others in their time of need.

We’re never really able to completely avoid natural disasters. Mother nature always works on her own schedule. However, we can help others and prepare for tragedies that might occur to us in the future. Preparation isn’t just a characteristic of successful businessmen and women but success in life in general.
