Daily Post Prompt: Crisis

In response to daily post’s one-word prompt: Crisis

There is a saying:  “no human can ever harm you as long as God is on your side.”

It probably sounds odd to say ‘God on your side,’ by it I mean we have to sincerely ask for divine help, to overcome any kind of crisis. Years ago my parents and siblings and I  were caught in a warzone. Our neighbors told us to leave our house immediately if we wanted to be alive.

Our belongings were packed in suitcases, which we intended to take with us, we left everything and set out on our way to a shelter which was provided by my Dad’s boss.

On and on we walked, not knowing if we’d survive this crisis, my mom carried her holy books which in her mind would save us. We reached the place after a long strenuous walk.

We stayed in the shelter for a couple of days. From there we boarded a train, hoping to reach the place where we didn’t have to worry  about getting killed. We did reach our safe haven and were thankful knowing we won’t ever have to face this difficult situation again.

With the way things are in the world today, it’s not certain, when someone would decide to attack and kill innocent people. We can no longer take things for granted, danger can present itself in a matter of seconds.

We must learn to treat each other well regardless of our color, language or religion, toleration is something we should think about.

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for this post. I especially like your powerful last sentence.

    While our bodies may be slain, it’s fortunate that attackers, or severe weather, or any other harmful event, cannot touch the imperishable part of us.

    All good wishes,


    • Thank you Sonya, no I’m not bitter, when it happened I was too young to understand
      what was going on, only knew we must leave the house. My Dad stayed very calm in all of this,
      I guess he did not want to frighten us. 🙂
