thinking of china


We will take a day off to acknowledge the terrible tragedy that has occurred as a result of the earthquake in the Sichuan Province. We heard a sobering statistic today on the news : 1 in 50 of the earth's population lives in the region impacted by the earthquake. So much suffering, especially the 900 children who were in the school that collapsed.

i couldn't agree with both of you more. these natural disasters make me realize even more how we are at the mercy of nature and it's a matter of luck.

myanmar is really disheartening as the aid is available, but the government is just not accepting it.

no complaining allowed here today.
