One guy donated one million dollars USD. And school kids here are raising funds.
Perhaps I'm more emotional today, but seeing the scenes on TV, and the stories, brought tears to my eyes.
170,000 people dead so far.
This is a catastrophe of cataclysmic proportions. And yet, despite the death, despite the aid people locally and from afar are giving, terrorist bombs are killing innocents in Iraq. The Indonesian government is ungratefully telling the American troops providing support there that the sooner they leave the better. The imans there are threatening the Christian relief groups working there.
Does this make sense?
Is there no hope for humanity? Of not being white, black, Asian? Muslim or not? Can't we just exist together?
