The numbers are staggering. Over 77,000 lives have been erased by the deadly earthquake and resultant tsunamis. And still, the count rises...
Please contribute something, large or small, to the charity of your choice. Any amount will be gratefully accepted.
How can you not be moved by the pain in those eyes? *tears*
(C) Copy written, 29 December, 2004
by Karla Dorman.
Those that had nothing in the first place
Have lost everything they owned.
You can see it written on each face,
Indelibly etched and honed
Into a sharpness that transcends pain.
Those that had nothing but hopes and dreams
Have lost everything they had.
You can hear it with each parent's screams
When they find their children clad
In death's embrace, their tears fall like rain.
Those that had nothing own nothing more
Except for what's on their back.
They've lived with devastation before,
They've lived with nature's attacks
Yet, the numbers continue to rise.
Those that had nothing have nothing left
Until we show them we care.
Our brothers and sisters are bereft
Of everything but our prayers...
Can you help ease the pain in those eyes?

|Wonderful poem, Karla, filled with truth and compassion. One that touches our hearts and reminds us that we are but small pieces of the puzzle of life and that somehow, we need each other to make a whole. Thanks for sharing!|

|Karla you shine through the beauty of your compassion with this heart felt poem! How can we not have tears, how can we not help, it is us this is happening to, for we are all connected on this very small planet, and with each new disaster, we grow smaller, but lets hope our hearts grow larger! Love now snd in the New Year, Eileen|
