We live in a world of uncertainty. We hear about:
- Trains colliding
- Floods destroying entire communities
- Earthquakes that bring grief
- Young people dying suddenly pre maturely
Why do these events make us anxious and afraid? The reason is simple :
i. Firstly these events are unpredictable. If we can anticipate and predict an event, we can prepare for it.
ii. Secondly, such unpredictable and untoward events are often a cause of economic loss and grief .
