Act of god

A friend of mine had a tree fall on his car last week. Nasty incident. One half of the car was crushed under the weight of the tree to a flat sheet. He just got done paying off the debt for the car too, so he was really upset about the situation. The situation had happened on university premises though, so in addition to filing an insurance claim, he got in touch with a university official to find out if the university could help make amends. I did not expect the university to pick any tabs but what caught my attention was the email response from the official. It was god's will, he said. My friend thanked him for his empathy and ended the dialogue.

Of course I have heard stories of people talking like this, just never seen it happen this close. Peace.
