He watched his world surrender to the whirlpool of filth, lies, betrayals and decay. Pirates suffocated anyone struggling to fill choking lungs with clean, pure air. Many inhabitants were unaware of their vanishing freedoms until it was too late. Tangled in the snares devised for them by seemingly friendly leaders, they sunk deeper into the swirling pit, not knowing where to turn for help. Peaceful protesters failed to bring about change as time and again uniformed militants forced them to disperse.

Making waves now could capsize the luxury liner life style these sneaky thieves had grown accustomed to. Their ships sailed on waves of blood, sweat and tears, which meant little to nothing to the crooks who dined on the fruits of anotherís labor. The Observerís eyes spilled tears while he witnessed unimaginable destruction brought on by greed and the lust for power.

There was a time in the distant past when he had dismissed an army of traitors from his home for this very transgression. Closing his eyes, he shook his head in disgust. It may have been days or was it years by the time the Observer glared down at the place of disdain. With a sweep of his mighty hands he gathered fireballs and hurled them to his once favored planet--Earth. One word sounded with the thunder of a thousand hooves as it echoed throughout all of creation---ENOUGH! Flames lapped up oceans of water, melted mountains and licked the dry land to dust.

His anger was unleashed on a fallen world and destroyed it as easily as plucking a gold fish from its bowl. For you see, since the beginning of time He has kept mankind in his sight. Just as a goldfish swimming aimlessly in a glass globe canĎt hide from curious eyes, certainly nothing happens that escapes the eyes of God.
