Maryt,
You always keep us aware of what's going on in our world. I appreciate that. Blessings...
Just received word that a family we love has arrived from China to the US for several months before they return to China again. I'm glad they are here safe and sound for a while...

Mary,
You find some worthwhile stuff. Thanks for making me think.

So much tragedy in the world. I've often said if I start feeling sorry for myself and my circumstances all I need do is look around and I soon find myself counting my blessings instead.

That puts a picture to the saying paper thin walls doesn't it?

Necessity the Mother of Invention. I feel sad for them.

That's a strange picture. I think its comforting, but there's a strange regimentation about it that you don't usually see in disaster relief.

As I went to the ballet on Saturday, here in Nova Scotia, Canada, a group of Chinese emigrees had a table set up for donations for the earthquake. To them, it's not just something on the news - it's their family and friends. And they are now my neighbors, riding the bus with me, standing behind me in the store lineup. The earthquake reached out and touched me.

Hi Mary,
What a terrible tragedy. Even though the picture is sad, that these people must live so tightly quartered, I give their relief advisors applause for thinking so quickly to get them into a place that is clean, dry and safe. Compared to our plan of action after Katrina, well, I should say "no plan"...they are doing their best for the victims of this horrific earthquake.
Hugs,
Kimmie
