I Just want to send my love and prayers out to my family and friends who are suffering at this tragic time. May the Lord
comfort our loved ones and help us find strength.
It's been a couple of sleepless nights and im sure that's the case for many families across the globe.
My heart aches knowing that there are lives and even children yet to be found amongst the destruction.
I can't imagine what it's like right now to wake up to such damage. I just hope that those who are suffering have a place to rest their heads and have food to eat.
