When words are not enough

Like most other bloggers, there’s really not much one can say about the Asian earthquake that’s not already echoing through the heads of our readers. The latest estimate I’ve heard is of at least 57,000 people dead, a number that’s getting too large to contemplate.

It may not feel like much, but we can all do something to help – the UN has already said that it will need the biggest aid operation the world has ever seen, and you can help by donating to one of the organisations that willo be working with the affected, like the Red Cross/Red Crescent. Please feel free to suggest any other ways of helping in the comments.
