All in a morning...

I don't know if you've heard, but there was an earthquake this morning. Huge. 8.9 magnitude. It is disrupting thousands of millions of lives. Absolute destruction.
And we humans think we're so powerful.
Then this little ole planet reminds us that there is much we cannot ever dream of controlling.
I grieve for all the lives lost in the face of this immense power. I hope for those who have literal chances of rebuilding in the aftermath.
Mostly though I am continually shocked at the ease of my day. Schadenfreude. I am so happy to not be them. I am so happy to go home to my wonderful husband. I am happy that my life will continue.

I am so sad that this will be easily forgotten.

Watch the videos...and be grateful.
