Usually I post photos of something or other with each blog entry, but after viewing photo after photo of the devastation and death resulting from the tsunamis, I just can't post any images. I don't even know how to think about this event. It's too horrific and huge for me to even get my head around. My son and I sent a donation to the American Red Cross and he decorated the envelope with hearts and smiley faces so he could feel like he was contributing somehow, but it seems like so much...futility?...even though I know every contribution helps.

What really gnaws at me are the faces of children in shock, having lost some or all of their families. I'm praying for everyone who suffered or is suffering from the disaster, but these kids' eyes haunt me.
