My heart is breaking to look at footage of the murky water, and realize there were people in it. Their houses, their belongings, their pets, their photos, even many of their lives; all swept away by the wall of ice-cold, salty water.

Honestly, most of the time it's hard for me to feel genuine, sincere empathy in reaction to something that happens across the planet. But for a place that I called home for six weeks, it horrifies me to imagine the cheerful, friendly, tidy, calm yet bustling neighborhoods and cities transformed into the wreckage I see in the news.

Wishing them peace and strength.
Help here if you can.
