Where was God ?

God gets blamed for all sorts of things.

God gave us the option of following – or not following, various courses of action.

A fair number of people raised their concerns about the safety
of the tip well before the disaster occurred.  They were given ‘white-wash’ answers.

God should not be blamed for people living in denial,
mis-management, or stupidity.

The Aberfan disaster has sometimes beeen referred to as The Price of Coal.  I would describe it as The Price of Stupidity.
