when things of this magnitude happen half a world away, one feels useless....
but I always remember a woman I saw,
years and years ago,
who was going through some horrible event...
I'm ashamed I don't remember which one,
and she looked at the camera that was photographing her
and she said to the reporter...
do they know...do they know what is happening
and the reporter answered yes, they do,
and the woman smiled and said...that's all I want.
So, we know and if that's all we can do, it's all we can do
But my heart still aches for them and all that they have yet to face,
because no matter how strong and robust they are....
they are still human and they still hurt.
