All I can think about is the devastation in Japan.
Naively, I watched the tsunami sweep cars and houses in a thundering tumult of chaos and just assumed all the people had been evacuated. They weren’t, of course, how could they have been?
Friends have lost loved ones, people are still missing, the horror of this is going to be around for a long, long time.
I felt I could do nothing to help in the face of such catastrophe, nothing except pray and give. But praying and giving is not nothing and all of us, safe in our temperate, safe, disaster free beds can do it.

Let’s hold the people of Japan in our hearts and empty our wallets on their behalf.
