1. Thanks for posting this. We're so wrapped up in our own troubles...
...we forget the misery happening to others on the other side of the world. My sister lives on the island of Samui in the Bay of Thailand. They aren't getting the floods, but everything in Thailand flows through Bangkok (sorry, no pun intended), and the stores on the islands are running out of food and water because nothing can be shipped out. One of her friends posted on FB this morning that they had no milk, eggs, or bottled water (a necessity). And they don't expect it to get better any time soon.
