October 19. “Button, time’s just flying past. We stepped into 2009 only the other day and October is almost coming to an end!
Another two months and we step into 2010. I don’t know about you but I am very scared. Times are not changing for the better either. We’ve already experienced a bad recession from which we have yet to recover. Then came swine flu, terror attacks in different parts of the world—the world is becoming a tougher place to be in every single day. One does not feel safe anywhere anymore.”
“I agree with you. It’s becoming unsafe for us as well. Animals are becoming extinct all over the world because of global warming, poaching…”
“It’s sad how the human race is bringing everything to a standstill. This reminds me of Noah’s Arc. Do you know the story?”
“Somewhat but tell me.”
“God saw that the number of evil people far outnumbered the good. So he told Noah—one of the good men around—to build a big boat, put a pair of every kind of animal on it as he was going to send floods to destroy everything.”
“But after he destroyed everything by floods, he also promised that he would not wipe out humanity in a similar manner and the rainbow is proof of that.”
“You’re right. Who knows what plans he has for us this time round!”
