...I feel the earth move
Hello. On this day in 1907 an earthquake in Kingston, Jamaica killed more than 1,000 people and animals. The news from Haiti is even more profoundly grim. Rescue workers struggled to clear rubble and bodies Wednesday from the streets of Haiti's "flattened" capital, where a government official said the death toll from Tuesday's 7.0-magnitude earthquake may exceed 100,000. I have provided a link if you want to help but it is up to you to investigate to see if the listed organizations actually get the funds to the correct recipients. One can't help but wonder what it would be like to have your world literally ripped out from under you and my prayers go out to the victims and survivors of this natural disaster. Yes, delayed website orders, cranky people and not reaching certain monthly goals can be devastating. This is the real world. Work hard, play hard and don't forget to hug people and tell them that you love them. (If you really do).

Rest in peace Teddy.
