*Edited 5/23/08; the toll is now closer to 62,664 and *still* expected to climb...unimaginable :( *

I am referring to the recent earthquake in China. Those poor people, families and children, I can't even imagine what they are going thru. Imagine losing everything you hold near and dear, losing family members, in some cases entire families are gone. Schools collapsing on helpless children.....it's all so terrible... the loss of life, the heartache of losing a loved one.
I guess what I want to say, is that everything you have or know to be real, can be taken from you in an instant. So, take the time to tell your family you love them, take time to appreciate and be thankful for all that you have.
