"The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others." -M.G.
It is no surprise that some pretty bad natural disasters have struck our planet in the past few years. We have New Orleans, Indonesia, Haiti & most recently Japan, just to name a few. Although I would love to go into depth about the fact that STILL assistance is needed for repairing the damages that these disasters have caused in many of the previously listed areas, that would make this blog be about 7 pages long lol Viewing the devastating news footage of the Tsunami/Earthquake happenings in Japan just a few nights ago, my little heart breaks. Imagine tucking in your loved ones in at night or kissing your spouse off to work only to realize the next morning that that would be the last time you saw them. Although we can't exactly control the Earths movements and shifts, we can do things to be more aware. Spreading knowledge about whats going on is only the beginning, but it is certainly a start.
Some photos of the heartache in Japan:

As the fortunate ones in this situation, I think it is our job to assist where we can. There are MANY ways to assist, not necessarily just monetarily. I am going to give you the opportunity to do some more research on this yourselves and quit rambling on, because with things that touch my heart like this, I could do so FOREVER!

I hope we can all start taking better care of one another in our times of need. I must cry on average 3 times a day just watching the news footage of what these innocent people have been thrown into. Whatever you can do to help, is more than not helping at all.
