reflection

I just can't seem to bring myself to do an outfit post or a runway review after my last post on Japan. As more and more bodies are found and the death toll creeps higher and higher, I sit at my computer, in an old but functional house, with working electronics, with showers and bathrooms, with blankets and enough food for however long--and I can't help but be extremely thankful for my life here in Southern California, in the United States. The life I live is more luxurious (despite my own complaints) than most people live in the world. The tsunami and earthquakes that have caused so much devastation to Japan has actually changed my perspective on life, and how I react to things. While I sit here and complain about bad internet connection, long and boring classes, or other things, they seem entirely irrelevant and selfish compared to what the Japanese are currently going through. I pray nightly for the safety of the Japanese, and that they may turn to God in this time of distress, and that He will hear our/their prayers.
