THE DAILY POST

Write a new post in response to today’s one-word prompt.
Chaos isn’t something that just crept up on this world like a thief in the night, nor did it come roaring in, like a title wave. Chaos and its best traveling companion, crisis have been traveling all over this world leaving nobody untouched. Wherever they stopped and spent some time, disaster was right around the corner, soon in a state in which behavior and events are not controlled by anything. Chaos grows along with terrorist activities, Chaos follows wars over religion, territories, old borders and boundary lines.
Chaos and his friend crisis did not just come out of the blue sky, or happen like falling rain or snow. Chaos is usually man-made by people who have greedy desires and greedy goals that they are trying to attain. The difficulty and the tragedy that they cause to the people and the earth is of little concern. Their main objective is to control as much as they possibly can and get as much gold into their bags as they will hold.
This is a small snapshot of worldwide chaos, conditions that are very undesirable, but are also very unnecessary. Almost all chaos and crisis can be averted by people sitting down with each other and talking as adults.
Chaos can also be caused by natural disasters such as earthquakes, landslides, tornadoes, hurricanes, severe thunderstorms, and tsunamis. Chaos that comes in the form of natural disasters raise questions. Why did this happen to this place or to that city? We have no answers. While natural disasters happen, where they happened and why they happen. We will never have answers for that. We do have answers for man-made chaos, and it is something that could be avoided.
Many families live in daily chaos in their homes. They claim they cannot understand why, it must be some external force, must be from the government interference or the laws infringing on the rights. They cannot imagine that they could be causing their own chaotic environment. Some families live in chaos for so many years, they seem to thrive on it. How many families have one or more of the following conditions disorder, disarray, disorganization, confusion, mayhem, bedlam, pandemonium, havoc, turmoil, tumult, commotion, disruption, upheaval?
I certainly am not an artist. But I have created a mental picture of chaos and all I can see are hundreds of shades of black and gray and everything in between. Absolutely no light because complete chaos does not allow any light to shine.
