Beyond Self – A call for prayer

Filed under: Doodles, Blabs and Rants — didee @ 6:49 pm

If you are reading this, please offer a prayer to the earthquake Victims in China.

A 7.9 Magnitude quake claimed lives last Monday, May12, 2008.

Where the death count is rising to near 15,000 as of today.

One school collapsed burying 900 students. Only 60 were rescued so far.

The above photo is what remains of a hospital after an earthquake hit Dujiangyan province of China.

One province whose population is 10,000, lost more than 7,000 of it’s residents.

~*~*~***~*~*~

And also pray for the 1.5 million to 1.9 million victims, struggling to survive, after Cyclone Nargis hits Myanmar.

More than 100,000 have gone dead or missing.

(photo from http://www.reuters.com) The Military Junta which rules the country is denying the entry of foreign aid. One needs to apply for a visa to be able to help the survivors of the cyclone.

The World is begging to the Myanmar Government to let them help.

At least 40% of Myanmar Dead are children.
