One reason: "Nations need a periodic jolt to refocus on what is important: attending to others in their hour of need, setting examples of service above self, and the like." But that explanation didn't work for me. Why? Because of disasters and wars which suddenly took the lives of thousands within minutes, and the World Wars and their Holocausts which destroyed tens of millions of lives within a short time. So if this "holding place" in "heaven" (my term for THE PLACE), has trouble processing 450 souls, how will it take care of tens of thousands at a time?
Winston appears at this time. He's one of the souls who lost his life in the hurricane. "Let me assure you," keeper Jory tells the crowd of 450 souls, "that not one of you has died in vain. There is a purpose in all that has happened to you. Purpose for either you or for those left behind on terra firma."
Jory has such deep and soothing words! "Catastrophic events are neither untimely nor punishments. Each and every one of you agreed that this is the way you would transition to the spiritual realm." To me, that's a muddle of theology, or new-age teachings, or the author's way to cope with loss and "transitions." Sorry--none of that worked for me. But I admire anyone who would try to make sense of all the senseless events that happen to so many people in this life. Big books have been written on this subject, and more will be coming. This ten-pager can't quite offer a satisfying explanation.
The author introduces another one of his/her novels, LOVE, CARRY MY BAGS. That one promises to be fuller and more satisfying.
Winston's Supernatural Disaster follows the afterlife journey of Winston and what he experiences when he takes his last breath. CR Everett paints a picture that makes you think and attempts to answer the age-old question of..."why" bad things happens to good people. I enjoyed it very much.
