It seems there are more and more people in terrible situations. I recently listened to some people who had lived in, survived and then worked through the tsunami in Japan. Some of my friends were evacuated from their homes in Austin Texas. I see reports of earthquakes, wars, famines, hurricanes and financial unrest.
I as I have watched and spoken with friends over the past couple of years I see sickness, death, cancer, bankruptcies, divorce and much of suffering. Maybe I notice because of my situation. I feel powerless to help. Sometimes I try, sometimes I think I will attempt but shrink away. Sometimes I try to help and am pushed away.
I wish I could give these people peace. I wish I could find more peace in my life.
