THE ENEMY

I AM MORE POWERFUL THAN THE COMBINED ARMIES OF THE WORLD , I HAVE DESTROYED MORE MEN, WOMEN AND CHILDREN THAN ALL THE WARS OF ALL NATIONS. I MASSACRE THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE EVERY YEAR. I AM MORE DEADLY THAN BULLETS AND HAVE WRECKED MORE HOMES THAN THE MIGHTIEST GUNS.

IN THE UNITED STATES ALONE, I STEAL OVER 500 BILLION DOLLARS EACH YEAR. I SPARE NO ONE AND I FIND MY VICTIMS AMOUNG THE RICH AND THE POOR ALIKE, THE YOUNG AND OLD, AND THE STRONG AND THE WEAK. WIDOWS KNOW ME TO THEIR EVERLASTING SORROW. I LOOM UP IN SUCH LARGE PROPORTIONS THAT I CAST MY SHADOW OVER EVERY FIELD OF LABOR.

I LURK IN UNFORSEEN PLACES AND DO MOST OF MY WORK SILENTLY. YOU ARE WARNED AGAINST ME, YET YOU HEED ME NOT. I AM RELENTLESS, MERCILESS AND CRUEL. I AM EVERYWHERE, IN THE HOME, IN THE SCHOOLS, IN THE FACTORY, ON LAND, IN THE AIR AND ON THE SEA.

I BRING SICKNESS, DEGRADATION AND DEATH, YET FEW SEEK ME OUT TO DESTROY ME. I CRUSH, I MAIM, I DEVESTATE, I WILL GIVE YOU NOTHING AND ROB YOU OF ALL YOU HAVE.

I AM YOUR WORST ENEMY
I AM RAMPANT FIRE.
