Gone

I had every intention of posting about another of my favorite things tonight, but I can’t get the earthquake in Haiti out of my mind. Whole schools, embassies, hospitals…gone. Piles of rubble. The very places one would turn to in an emergency…gone. No food. No water. No power. Bodies in the streets. Wounded people with nowhere to go. The potential of over 100,000 dead.

I cannot imagine, yet cannot get the images out of my head.

If you want to help, I think these reputable organizations will steer you in the right direction:

Be well. Hug your family. And give the dog an extra treat.
