Affected

For the past few days I've been thinking, as much of the world has been, of the people in Japan.  It's strange that this natural disaster has occurred, destroying towns, ending lives, changing the coastline of a country and the tilt of the Earth on its axis, and yet, here, my life is going on the same as it was Thursday.  I don't know what can really be said.  I just know that I will sit in traffic for hours, I will pay almost $4.00 a gallon for gas, my dogs will bark at the neighbors and my son will cry inconsolably at 2 am, and tonight, I will go to sleep counting my blessings.
