I had a nice quiet Christmas sitting by the beach with family and friends, eating too much good food, relaxing and enjoying the day.
We heard no news for a couple of days and had no idea of the devastation and tragedy that had occurred to so many.
There is nothing I can say or do that will bring back even one of the estimated 20000 lives lost.
We can help some of those suffering now and prevent more suffering and disease in the near future.
Fresh water and medical supplies will be required but the best way to help is to donate money.
If you can, please donate something to one of the aid agencies doing their best to help those in need.
If uncle Bob gave you $5 for Christmas, now you know how to spend it.
