  1. I just needed somehwere to say this. I have been reading about the tsunami over in Asia, and it is breaking my heart. My thoughts and sympathies go out to the victims and survivors of this terrible ordeal. :( Peace, Love & Light.

    I've been crying so much these last couple of days watching it all on tv and hearing about it. I wish I could jump on a plane and go over to help in the relief efforts, but that's just not possible:(
     
  3. I feel awful because I didn't take time until now to realize the severity of it all. I've been crying my eyes out looking at the pictures of it. It is just absolutely mind blowing.

    What's happening over there is awfull......
    But it happened, and grieving over what happened won't help, if you can volunteer than go over there and help. If you can't, send money, they need it badly over there.

    I feel very badly about what happened and still very helpless. I did send a $60 check to the American Red Cross, which will go towards the relief efforts, but I wish I could fly over to Southeast Asia and help those in need.

    Yeah, simply awful. I read that a volcano in the Canary Islands is set to erupt anytime now. It could be decades or centuries. But when it happens, the eruption could create a landslide, which will fall into the ocean, creating huge tidal waves which will hit the entire american eastern coast, southern britain, and (I beleive) africa. This is just the begining.

    I come from India, although I am currently in the US, my family are all in Madras (chennai) which was one of the cities along the eastern coast that was struck. Death toll - 800. Luckily my family lived far enough inland that they were safe, but there are many of my friends who have lost people, some guys I knew from school were washed off to sea. It's one of those instants which remind me very sharply of what bad collective karma humankind is accumulating. All we can do is pray.
