As I am reading this thread, I feel numb, and shocked, and wondering what I can do to help. Prayer seems such a trifle thing when so many are going through such excruciating pain, emotionally and mentally, and physically. I will have faith in prayer, and hope that those who need strength , receive it, those who need consolation, receive it, and those who need help of any kind will find hearts open and ready to help.
I am not a person of great wealth, but I would love to help out financially in some way, besides prayer. I would appreciate an inside track on a TRUSTWORTHY organization , that is dedicated to helping these victims , and will not use funds inappropriately. After I have read about some of the wages that certain people make with big charity organizations, I am leary to send money to them. I'm really not into donating to a million dollar(or even over 100,000) a year salary for some crony that sits at his desk for two hours a day. *sighs*
I barely ever watch the news on television these days, and go days without looking on the net for latest news, so this is the first I have heard of this, and I only noticed the thread today. My condolences , prayers and well wishes for all the souls suffering through this, in so many ways.
