It’s so sad watching what is happening in Haiti. I’m sure all of us our sending our best thoughts their way.
Whenever something like this happens, it just feels so far removed that it almost doesn’t seem real. It somehow doesn’t seem right how we can and do just go on with our lives. I suppose it is just a coping mechanism. After all, how would we survive if we felt the depth of each and every tragedy that befalls everyone else. It just makes you feel so callous, though.
On one of the videos on TV, you could hear a woman screaming “it’s the end of the world”. It is so sad that it really is the end of the world for many of those people. And here we are just carrying on the same as usual. So sad.
