What can you say? So many people missing, so many people gone. It is so sad, and frightening, and unnerving. No one will ever forget the sight of that black wall of water washing over the fields, taking away buildings and cars along with all the people trapped inside.
After so much misery you would think 2011 had served up enough trouble to keep us awake with nightmares for the rest of our lives, but no, it delivers more. And it seems that each disaster scales up in both terror and tally.
It makes you a little fearful of what will happen in the weeks and months ahead.
Again we are reminded to keep our loved ones close and our (perceived) injustices in perspective. Life is not perfect, so don’t expect it to be. And always remember to be grateful; if you are able to read this you are very lucky indeed.
