Ok, this is one of the times when you realize just how lucky you are.
What is happening in Burma is an inconceivable disaster of epic proportions.
From this day on I temper my complaints about my government, my job, my messy house, my old car and live for the things I so take for granted.
You may have heard how hard it is to get aid into Burma, but there is a way to get something in there... the monks are working on the ground floor of this, offering shelter and relief for those affected - please visit www.avaaz.org to donate if you can, if you can't just go look to see what can be done.
Our world is small, I look at the town I grew up in and the number of dead is equal to four of them - every single person. That is a very sobering thought.
