I hope you have learned that pushing for short term gain at the expense of health and safety is not profitable or commendable. I hope this, but I
suspect not. I suspect that you will get off without having to pay the true cost of the damage you caused with your reckless rush to profits, just
like many corporations your size do.
Oh sure, there will be much hoopla about damage awards, and funds being set up, but we both know that years from now, when the public has moved on
to the next media storm, you will win some appeal and have those damages reduced to something that is a mockery of justice.
So I am also hoping that you as people somehow learn that money is not everything. I hope that you learn, somehow, through circumstances in your
own lives, that people and other living things, and the Earth itself, matter more than your stupid bonuses, or salaries, or houses in Spain.
I hope this because it would effect more lasting change than any monetary award against a nameless, faceless, non living entity like a corporation
ever will. So forgive me for hoping you learn this lesson. Because it often comes in a horribly painful form, often by losing people you love very,
very much, and realizing that no amount of money can replace them. Maybe you will be lucky and you will learn it some other way.
