This is awful -- an 8.9 on the Richter scale earthquake, though it was the resulting tsumais and tidal waves that have killed so many: nearly 12,000 dead so far, and plenty still missing. Nearly a million people affected altogether.

I have been following this terrible disaster on the news. Makes me feel awful for complaining about the little snow we got!

I was just looking on a Yahoo news web page about the dead from the Earthquake and waves, and how the US is going to "generously" turn loose of 15 million for the relief fund.
How sad they can't send all the money are spending to support killing Iraq to help take care of those who will be suffering from malaria and cholera in Indonesia, India, and affected areas.
This would be a prime time to try to turn things around in this Christmas Season, to Do the Right thing! Practice the Golden Rule, Stop the killing for oil and help those live, that some in our country, consider "the other."

No, many countries in that region probably wouldn't rush to our aid, but, we can be an example!

Back again,
I visited another blog that states how I feel very plainly about our President and informs us that the Presidents inauguration is going to cost more than the relief he is sending.
Go here to read about it:
