Thank you for visiting us yesterday, and not being too angry. I guess something was bothering you and you wanted to remind us of your presence. I understand we need to treat our earth with more respect, and you are right to remind us of your power.
However, I beg you to remember the children. They are still innocent and cannot defend themselves from your wrath. My children were particularly shaken after your visit yesterday. My daughter was in the bathroom when you came, and she felt extremely frightened. She is only young, and did not understand what was happening. All she knew was that the ground that she walks on every day was suddenly moving without explanation. Its a very unsettling feeling for a small child. She has not wanted to be alone in a room ever since, and did not sleep well last night.
The memories of your visit to Indonesia in 2004 and the deluge of water that followed are still fresh in our minds. The devastation that you wreaked was horrendous. Over 170,000 people were killed and over 500,000 left homeless. They are still rebuilding the area, and many lives will never be the same. We lived in terror for years following that visit, every tremor sparked fear and panic.
We had just recently started to relax, enjoying life without any disturbances, and then you came back yesterday. Maybe you do not want us to become complacent. Is that your message? With Earth day coming up tomorrow, your timing is perfect!
I hope you do not feel the need to visit again anytime soon, but if you do, please try and be gentle
A concerned citizen
