I have not blogged…

Because I have been  overwhelmed by the idea of saying ANYTHING at all if I wasn’t saying something about what’s happened in Myanmar and China.  But what can I say?

The coverage makes me cry.  The numbers make me cry. They should make you cry. You should send something, some money.

God, how awful.

But as much as I have nothing useful to say, I hate staring at the last post I put up, about how lucky I am.  It makes me feel so self involved I could spit.

So this is all I have right now. What I’ve got:

Death sucks. The world is a very hard place for a lot of people a lot of the time and often we cannot help very much, but we should still notice, and try, and appreciate how lucky we are, and hug our babies.

I keep hugging my babies. 

It’s terrible.

    The NYTimes ran a series of pictures from the China earthquake, of parents grieving for their children. The one that made me cry was the last one, the only one without a caption. That kind of grief–there really aren’t words for it.

    I’ve actually delayed putting anything on my blog or sending money esp. to Burma because it sounds like all the aid coming in is being rounded up by the junta. I might make a donation this week to UNICEF. They seem to be actually getting necessities to folks there.
