  2. Read the poem and heard the audio. Beautifully read Gillena! There seems to be an undercurrent of adverse feelings. At the latter part there appears to be acceptance but with reluctance!

  3. Every new tragedy awakens the reality of those that have come before and sadly continue.

  4. Even more poignant in light of the events in Nepal. The robotic voice made it sound like Stephen Hawking was reading the poem! Sort of puts a cosmic twist on it.

  6. A very good reminder.. the catastrophes seems to come and gets repeated.. and the one in Haiti was one of the worst.. so much worse when the land is poor to start with.

  8. No prizes for guessing why you chose to revisit this one just now! What applied to Haiti then describes Nepal right now. And you are right; we must not turn away.
