Words Don't Do it Justice

I reserve Saturdays for my adventures in green living. But green living isn't just about recycling and compact florescent bulbs. It's about living with others in mind, not taking more than one's own share of resources, and remembering that others will live here after us.

Other people need us now. Japan had a quadruple whammy yesterday: Two earthquakes, a tsunami, and a disaster at a power plant. They will recover, they will bounce back-- but they can't do it on their own.

So please, do what you can to help Japan. There are plenty of ways to donate, plenty of prayers to be said, and probably other possibilities that I'm not imaginative enough to think of. We can step up and make their recovery easier.

A timely reminder that we are not alone and need to help those around us.

What a devestating series of events...I pray that their recovery efforts go smoothly.

@Carole: Neighbours can be down the street or across the world! But I definitely believe that we should all do what we can.

@Erica: Me, too. The pictures are heartbreaking.

The events of recent days are devastating and shocking. The world will have to unite in one way or another to get through this - I don't think we've seen a worse disaster in the last few decades. My heart goes out to the people.

my wife and I looked at photos and were struck by just wondering where they can even begin to clean up - and even where they can toss all the wreckage. so devastating - I can only imagine how much that would mess with your head.

The scientific numbers (as much as I understand them) are scary, too: The coastline moved 8 feet, the earth shifted 4 inches on its axis, and something about the crack in the earth (I think) being able to hold enough water to cover Texas to a depth of nine feet. I can't even wrap my head around that.
