“Heavenly Father, give us serenity to accept what cannot be changed, courage to change what should be changed and wisdom to know one from the other.”

This centuries old prayer carrys quite a sermon with its 26 words.

We’ve all witnessed yet another disaster with rising numbers of victims who, though we’ve never met, we’re absolutely brokenhearted for. I could sit here in front of my computer until I’m 100 and still not find the right words to sum up the emotions I know we all feel. They range from outrage (until we realize the futility of being angry with a hurricane) to helplessness to total sadness.

It can leave you feeling down, discouraged, and depressed. The best remedy is to do something to help. We have to realize that what’s done is, unfortunately done, and now what’s left has to be dealt with.

There’s nothing we can do to take back the damage that’s been done. But we can each do our part to lessen the destruction left in its wake. Click here to see what efforts are underway. An awful lot of people are in an awful lot of pain right now. If we can lessen any of that pain, we’ve walked with the angels.

I’ll keep you up to date on various efforts, organizations, etc. throughout the next few days. If you know of any, please e-mail us.

Make each moment count double,
~Joi
