and my heart breaks...

It is just devestating to read that there has been another earthquake. I am employed in the welfare industry and have had the pleasure of working with many Samoan, Tongan and Pacific Islander people over the past five years. It is horrible to think that so many people have lost their lives and these loving, family orientated, tight knit communities have been ripped apart by a natural disaster.

You can donate to Red Cross here. A little goes a long way.

I travelled to Thailand in 2005 after the Tsunami. Even though it was a couple of years after the big wave had hit, the people of Phuket were still deeply effected. We saw first hand photos of the devestation and it was absolutley heart breaking. To think that something very similar has happened again to such kind natured people is very very sad.

To all the people impacted by the tradegy - you are in my thoughts.
