lend a hand
Unless you've been sleeping under a rock, the disaster in SE Asia resulting from the tsunami is rapidly getting worst. Some numbers to contemplate:
At least 26,000 people are dead (that's more than 8 times the number of people who died in 9/11). Another estimated one million people have been displaced. And about 250,000 people that are probably also homeless. Yes, I like making numbers in bold type.
What's worst though, is that the majority of the countries affected have nowhere near the resources they need to cope. Therefore, I urge anybody who reads this to check the following sites on how to help:
.:World Vision International
.:International Red Cross
Donate money, water, medical supplies, food, clothing, and pray... it's all needed badly.
"What good is it, my brothers, if a man claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save him? Suppose a brother or sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to him, �Go, I wish you well; keep warm and well fed,� but does nothing about his physical needs, what good is it? In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.
Oh yeah... happy birthday me.
word. the grim totals are definitely rising quick...as of 12/28 it's 60000 perished, a total that's projected to more than double in the course of weeks. very heart-wrenching plight indeed.Post a Comment
