sex, money, and miscellany: talking about what matters

finally crying

I was finally able to cry today, not from reading one more CNN overhyped account of remote devastation somewhere that is not here, but from reading a blog post by a young couple who was visiting there and has survived. Being real sometimes requires simplicity, directness, personal experience. There are many, many aid organizations taking donations; money is the most helpful. Try Doctors Without Borders or the UU Service Committee. Give anything you can. But first, bear witness. Read the stories. Cry the tears. Know and be present in spirit with the people. We are one.

  1. I finally let myself cry, for real, when all 4 of the Haitian students at my school heard that their immediate families had all survived.
