Some say 550, some 850…who really knows how many mothers lost their children that day, or how many children are now without a mother, father, or sibling?
With desperate looks, how many cries rise and echo as hearts weep above? How many loved ones try ever so hard to rescue those that lie helpless under the rubble?
Instead of them it could have been us. But it wasn’t. So we can instead choose to stand beside the victims and show our support. The time for grief will come, but now is the time for aid, support, and relief. It is the time to help.
