Tales from the Trenches: I feel as if I have nothing to say.

I do.  Believe me.  I sit here and honestly think that nothing that I say is important at this moment that nuclear meltdowns are possible, people are in a country that has been shaken violently, then horribly plowed over by a wall of water, people are actually washing ashore, people are trapped, a country is partially destroyed and folks have selflessly gone to help knowing that they could be exposed to a nuclear meltdown. 

And yet, they've gone. 

I shake my head in amazement.  So often, we stand and say that the world is so selfish.  How could so-and-so do or think something.  People can be so judgmental.  And yet, there are people who see a need and go forth and act in an active way. 

Donations to the rescue effort in Japan are very important.  People racing to help is what restores my faith in the fellow man.  This one and that one can argue over ancient things, borders, rulers-gone-wrong and whatnot, but at the end of the day, there are times that we can work together as a team to help bail out our fellow neighbor on Earth.

That's where I'm at today.  Knowing that my words aren't really that significant in regard to the things that are currently going on.  Prayers.  Those are my significant words.

I feel as if I just can't do enough, can't give enough. I feel...helpless. :o(
