watching the storm
nothing to do
I am grateful that my dear, dear young friend Eve is safe in Santiago, Chile after the earthquake. I had some extremely anxious moments waiting for news from her parents who were spared some anxiety because they still didn't have electricity and didn't know (until I called their cell phone) that the earthquake even happened. They were able to quickly contact the organizers of the program and found out all of the students were safe and sound. I am saddened by the loss of many lives not far from where our beloved Eve is staying as an exchange student. I pray for all of the emergency aid workers to do their jobs safely and efficiently to find those buried in the rubble who can be rescued and for the bodies of victims to be found so their families can have resolution.
