It’s very interesting how awestruck humans can get when they see something so titanic, so monstrous and large that they just stand there and admire the sheer size of the very thing that sits before them. Skyscrapers, mountains, ships, and even some animals make us stop and admire the enormous size, and wonder how something could get so large. Our tiny brains just cannot comprehend it all.
So when we saw the crest of the wave begin to wash over the mountain range in the distance, engulfing the largest landscape in the nation, nobody ran for their lives—not because they knew they could not outrun it, but because they could not understand it. They could not understand the towering wall of water. They could not understand how a wave could get so big. They could not understand how something with such destructive force could look so majestic and beautiful—or could even exist at all.
