Floods

I am heartbroken for Pakistan right now...heartbroken. They say the devastation of the floods in Pakistan is worse than the Pacific Ocean tsunami, the Haitian earthquake, and the 2005 Pakistan earthquake combined. Did you know that? 20 million people are affected in the area of floods that is as large as all of New England, New York, New Jersey and Maryland combined.

Go here for a great article.
