There Aren't Words

Like Jen, I really have no words for the disaster in South East Asia. Of course, disaster doesn't even begin to cover it. Biblical words like lamentation, cataclysm, desolation, and calamity keep going through my head. But what to actually say? I have no idea. What can you possibly say to convey such an unimaginable thing. And now I'm reading that the death toll is over 50,000. It just gets more horrific as every day passes.

Accidentially looked at the front page of a news paper today. There was row upon row of dead children on that front page photograph.

That's the kind of thing that will numb you.

(Hello, Ith! Guess who?)

I have no words for it either, but you give voice to how I feel about it. I'm shocked, and speechless. I wish them all peace; those who died and those who remain.

I was in class last night and one of my adult students says "This is just like that disaster movie that Al Gore was talking about. We're all in trouble now." Let's hope that such idiocy doesn't begin to spread.

Thousands of people are suffering unimaginable pain. The horrors and cruelty of life are mainfesting themselves before our televised eyes.

Dear Liberals...the sky isn't falling. Life is happening. Do something to help and stop trying to find someone to blame.
