I was watching a History channel program the other day about some Rome empire ruling 2100 years before. On this, they have figured out that there was a ship with wine container jars in that ship and it got sank. May be that day it might be bad for those people.
However, we are able to understand more about their empire today and took out some of the jars from the deep ocean.
So, what I feel is sometimes we feel when bad happens why it is happening to me and blame external factors!! If bad happens, it might be for a reasoning and who knows after some 1000 years it may be a good thing!!
