I am touched by the happenings in Japan.
As I sit her on our porch, the day is beautiful, Mom arrived last night and we are enjoying the birds singing, the breeze in the palm trees and Harley’s beautiful flowers. I wonder how we would feel if it was all gone in a moment.
I have been through tremors of earthquakes in Northern California, and many hurricanes here in Florida. The fury of Mother Nature and the helpless victims have been on my mind.
I can’t wrap my thoughts around that sort of destruction and helplessness. I was the same way with hurricane Katrina and the quakes in Haiti and Chile. I tried to imagine the sense of loss. How would I respond to losing my family, neighbors, home, and life as I knew it? I saw the desperation on the television but have no experience to compare it to.
