i'm participating in the blogger day of silence tomorrow. i'm so saddened by the news of the earthquake and subsequent destruction and threat nuclear meltdown. follow this link for a way you can help. or, you can follow this link to donate to the LDS Humanitarian Fund. both organizations are great ways to send financial aid to the relief efforts going on in japan.
and, in order to act locally, how about we agree to make an extra effort to not waste, to be more kind, to give more, be more patient and to forgive others. unfortunately, a natural disaster in a reminder of how fragile human life is. let's remember to treat each as something special.
