"All mankind is of one author, and is one volume; when one man dies, one chapter is not torn out of the book, but translated into a better language; and every chapter must be so translated…As therefore the bell that rings to a sermon, calls not upon the preacher only, but upon the congregation to come: so this bell calls us all: but how much more me, who am brought so near the door by this sickness….No man is an island, entire of itself…any man’s death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind; and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tows, it tows for free." –John Donne.

Praying for all the victims in the earthquakes in Yunnan, Japan and all sufferers of disasters over the world.   It’s hard not to feel physically ill watching the live broadcast of the devastations.  Earth, be strong!!!! Ganbette! Jiayou!

    1. I’m lost for words… only prayers for the victims and their family and dear ones.

      We have a Tsunami watch in under an hour, I won’t affect me personally, just jolted us to reflect on things, but all we can do really go on with life as usual.
