Que Sera Sera

"Destiny conceals strange illuminations in the suffering life visits on us. The tale of fate is entangled with mysteries. Dare one say such and such shouldn't have happened? History is replete with monstrosities that shouldn't have happened. But they did, and we are what we are because they did. And history's bizarre seeding has not yet yielded all of it's harvest. Who knows what events will mean in the future of time? In the presence of great things glimpsed in life, one can only be silent and humble. The ultimate meaning of it all is beyond the human mind. All one can say is this has happened. Make of it what you will."

    I do find it interesting, but I have to argue with the lines "History is replete with monstrosities that shouldn't have happened. But they did, and we are what we are because they did."

    Especially the "we are what we are because of it"...it does not necessarily mean we're better off.

    Are we better off because of the Holocaust? NO. Because most Jews have become defensive and distrusting towards humankind.

    Are we better off because of 9/11? NO. Because Muslims the world over are being ostracized and judged as terrorists because of it.

    So yes, we are what we are because of what happened in history. But that's not necessarily a good thing.
