Pakistan


I must say I am a little disappointed in the blog world, but not really surprised. Every blog I went to last month talked about the hurricanes in the southern states and with good reason. They were pretty horrific. However, 18 000 dead and counting in Kashmir and barely a ripple. It would be fair to say most blogsters are fairly West centric in their views and sadly this shows through in our media too... It takes at least 100 000 or so to get coverage I would say. An injured cat in London probably gets the same coverage as this disaster...

San Nakji for President!

This westerner has blogged about it. It was horrible what has happened over there. I have lived through some ugly earthquakes, but nothing in the likes of what these people have been through.

I will keep them in my prayers. I can't imagine how tough this will be for all of them in the weeks and months to come. *sighs* Today is a sad day.

Thanks Ori ;-) I am sure your thoughts are appreciated.

This is bad. And I heard that entire towns at the epicenter had been wiped off the map and death toll was 30K plus... and rising.

It is really unimaginable...
