Capital disaster

What happened to you was quite unfortunate. I would not have known you that early had it not happened to you. Even years later, I skipped a beat when I met someone from you. When I read about you in school,the event haunted me. I had memorized the cause’s name much before I knew Chemistry(thanks to dad). The first in a series of processes in Organic Chemistry,reminded me of the company which later bought the notorious company. You appeared as an example in chapters on environment. Time eroded your significance; you were not as important as you used to be.

Justice denied.You struggle.You exist.You get some attention every year. That gives you the hope to survive.

Took me a few minutes and had to re-read twice to figure out what you meant!
Too complicated a post! Why do you harass your readers, you sadistic man?

Sounded like one of those ‘I have four legs but cannot walk..’ riddles. Venda mone, riddlikkalle..
But you seem to be visibly upset. Tell me where you will be during Christmas time and I will personally come and console you. ;)
