While the news from Baltimore is disturbing and sad, and seems to be the result of a serious problem our country is having with police and young black men, the news from Nepal is utterly devastating. Not that there is a need to grade the horrible, but really, Nepal has me reeling.
When an impoverished area is hit hard, it feels such a smack in the face. Like Mother Nature is pissed, and just blowing off steam. I read the articles. I see the images of history destroyed, people’s lives in shambles. They roll over me like a rainstorm. What can I do? I know I can send money, and I will, but somehow it feels bigger than that. I’d like to let those people know I care. Would it matter? It would matter if they let me know they cared, if I lost everything.
What is it that the average American can do besides send money? I would like to send love along with a check.
I will carry those people in my heart. That’s the best I can think of.
My cousin who once lived in Nepal believes Global Giving to be a quality fund to send money. Sending your love is free.
