i've always been a news junky - the major story yesterday, however, was just devastating . . . the tidal wave (tsunami) that struck the countries that rim the Indian Ocean was horrific . . . i watched the BBC station . . . they had the best coverage.
CNN didn't have the non-stop coverage, like BBC . . . CNN did have an interview with "Nate" (the Oprah design guy) . . . he was talking from a cell phone, in some field on an island that had been hit by a tsunami, he was without his passport or any personal belongings - pleading for help (water is really needed) . . . so the scope of this touches everyone . . .
last night i happened to get an e-mail from missionaries who we know in Indonesia . . . they were fine, as they are inland . . . they don't e-mail very often . . . Leo and i had been wondering how they were . . . voila, an answer!
2 organizations that we feel comfortable with giving support to when things like this happen are Samaritans Purse and World Vision . . .
when a world catastrophy happens, it gives me a fresh perspective on life . . . our world is so small now a days . . . we are connected . . .
sigh . . .
just thought i'd blog what i'm thinking about this morning . . .
