Asia Quake Tragedy

A bit delayed posting this, but I am deeply saddened by the quake (and resulting effects) in Asia that have taken around 22,000 lives That number of people dead is … incomprehensible. My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone affected by this tragedy.

Heartbreaking and like you said, incomprehensible.

I have a friend who's family is moving to Indonesia tomorrow. I think their plans have been put on hold for a little while.
