Iâll be away from the computer this morning, but Iâm thinking about war, disaster, famine and pestilence and Iâm praying. And, no, I'm not trying to depress you but remind you of our blessings.
India: Terror attack in Jaipur, 30 dead and rising.
Myanmar: The countryâs junta has allowed the US deliver disaster aid and the UN has resumed its assistance efforts, but with the food delivered being of good quality and slow perishability, the junta still hoards it and gives out spoiling food to its dying population.
China: A couple of days ago, a 7.9 earthquake shook the city of Dujiangyan and the death toll is past 12,000 and rising. China's disaster prep seems to be better than that of Myanmar's; it's the decrepit architecture that's yielded the high death toll.
UPDATE: In the comments, Martn Bebow says:
You forgot the civil war going on in Lebanon.I did. It's falling to Hezbollah.
