Oh, my. I just read the death toll went over 100,000 people. As soon as I pull my head out from under my pillow I'll send in a check. I don't watch TV or read the paper, I get my news from the internet.
Hearing about a mother who had to let one son go to save her other son just put me over the edge. Any mother in the world would just cry at the thought of somthing so unthinkable. She let go of the older, hoping he could better survive. I don't know more than that, I am not strong enough right now to find and read the whole story.
If we can spend biliions on our war in Iraq, I am sure we can pitch in to build/ rebuild the infractures in those countries hit so hard. I think it matters not what others say, I think it matters that we can help and we are morally obligated to do so.
Has there ever been a worse natural disaster, in terms of lives lost in one fell swoop?
