Waves of despair
Eighty thousand now. It's gone beyond anything I can possibly imagine.
I posted this as a comment elsewhere, and already it's obsolete:
Before I moved into the city, I lived in a 'burb with a population of around 53,000.
I tried to imagine it completely empty. Not only did it not work, but I felt even worse afterwards.
Yeah, I sent a few dollars through WorldVision. I had to. But I have to try to put it out of my mind before it makes me feel completely helpless, utterly at the mercy of forces beyond my control.
Which of course all of us are at some point.
Let there be prayers, and let there be the possibility that some families may yet be reunited, that some of the lost may yet be found.Posted at 7:00 PM to General Disinterest
