What is it with Mother Nature?

The videos of the devastation in Japan from the earthquake and the Tsunami provide nothing but shock and sorrow. Sitting in a comfortable living room watching the faces of victims, I wonder how I would manage in a disaster of this magnitude or any magnitude for that matter. It's just not today and tomorrow that the victims will reap the wrath of Mother Nature. They have been sentenced to years of struggles and rebuilding. What is it with Mother Nature that she treats the inhabitants of this earth so horribly. Have we intruded where we don't belong? Have we outworn our welcome? Have we abused Mother Nature? The pundits say that Japan with its recent history of political instability and economic woes has received a wake up call. Methinks that Mother Nature has given the entire world a wake up call.
