I have never relayed my belief in the paranormal with my readers, but at this point I must. Do I believe that spirits aka ghosts walk amongst us? The answer is yes. Those who die and do walk amongst us after they die are taken from us violently or it was not their time to die.
With that said, I firmly believe that those 29 coal miners can be walking amongst us as well as the 11 whose lives were lost on that oil rig in the Gulf. You may think that a bizarre belief, but it is mine and I am sticking to it.
They are hoping that we the people do hear their message to finally get our energy affairs in order before more lives are lost. I frankly believe if we keep doing the same thing over and over where we believe any loss of life will be minimal we are fooling ourselves. The energy business is a very deadly business. Unless we get our energy affairs in order where safety comes first, accidents like these will keep on happening. To keep on keeping on is the very definition of insanity.
The other day, in reading this Newsday article titled: Cook on La. oil rig that exploded recalls escape, what eerily jumped out was, "She (the cook) scrambled through hallways littered with rubble, following a man in a white T-shirt" "I could not see anything but that man. He just kept on saying 'Come this way, come that way.' It was like he was coaching me to my lifeboat, because I couldn't see," she said." In reading that article, the man who led that cook to safety was never identified. As I read that part of the article, shivers ran up and down my spine.
