I don't have alot of good news to offer this rainy Saturday...There is Burma that is still suffering Cyclone Damage, and over 2 million facing homelessness, and thousands in need , and the Military has continued to not allow AID Teams in. And then in China, thousands still missing, millions displaced and homeless, and Now this AM they are evacuating thousands of refugees due to Dams about to burst.In China the Government and Military are aiding the people as they flee destroyed villages, and working with Other AID Entities. The numbers from both Catastrophes are staggering. Both of these Disasters will continue to have consequential damage, as they face disease and starvation. Many NGO's and UN are still trying to assess if AID is getting to the people, as their teams are not allowed in.
I would ask that maybe people light a candle today and send thoughts of compassion to these people.....or Incense. Many of the people in both these regions are Buddhist and they will not even be able to grieve or bury or cremate their dead. The families in China,they are only allowed to have one child, and if their Only child has died at a State School, they have lost their Future. Very sad.

I will be back later today after making calls to Kentucky, ( and I hope they go better than the calls last weekend).If you want to email me you can enigma4ever@earthlink ( esp. if anyone finds the Gator photo). Also if you want to go to the Lighter side of Life, THE ENIGMA CAFE over on the blogroll has some more ZEN postings, music and art....even some humor. Have a good Saturday.
