All humans feel and express a vast range of emotions in his life. Emotions intensify whenever devastation occurs at a large scale. Whereas a happy moment in society brings happiness, the sad moments become a black cloud that hovers over people.    

The dark moments are the ones that involve devastation, death and destruction. Such devastations gravely impact us. But they impact us more deeply when they occur on a large scale. They leave behind deep wounds that take a long time to heal. 

Even after decades, they remind us of the horror, death, and devastation. People living in areas where tragedies occur take a longer time to recover from their horrible past.
