There’s a lot to take in this motzei Shabbat…
Catching up on the reality in Japan after Friday’s earthquake and tsunami disaster, and then reading about the horrific murders of two sleeping parents, two sleeping children and a sleeping newborn here, a few dozen kilometers from home, on Friday night.
Natural disasters make me feel powerless, and terrorist disasters make me feel desperate. Both end up infusing me with a ton of appreciation, after the dust settles.
So that’s going on. All I can handle right now is to feel absolutely grateful for every single minute I have, as I am right now.
