We are untouched by events happening on the far side of the globe...until we know of them.
Two hundred years ago most of the world would not hear of catastrophe in time to be emotionally touched by the event.
Yes, I'm thinking of the Christmas Tsunami, but now we are nearly nine years (!) past that event when
155,000 people died.
Right now the Philippines is enduring a typhoon which has killed at least 10,000 souls.
10,000. And that is just the early estimate for human life-everything else destroyed will have to be rebuilt after the main focus-the human lives lost or saved-is met.
Pray for the Philippines. Send the Red Cross money as you have for so many previous events.
We are here to help each other, as we can.
May God Bless you and the Philippines today.
