I'm always amazed at what gets covered and what doesn't. Since this tragedy has been off the media's radar, I thought that I'd do my part to raise the awareness. John Rich's web site has details on how to contribute to the relief effort, if you feel moved to do so.
I can remember when a large earthquake leveled half of my hometown one morning during my senior year in high school. My family's home was thrown from its foundation ... walls buckled and roof collapsed. That old Quaker town came together and got through the worst of it - neighbour helping neighbour. My Dad lead the effort to re-build our house, with all of our family pitching in to help.
Neighbour helping neighbour - that's how it should be done. I'll do my part. Will you do yours?
