My thoughts and prayers go out to those affected. My school is currently collecting donations and incidentals to send there. I am glad to see so many other efforts being put into place to help the victims recover. God bless everyone touched by this devastating tragedy.

I really feel sorry for all the people there.
I wish I was older and had money :hmm:

I heard that just one of 200 people own a car and now...
It's really sad the situation they're living :(

Just because your young doesn't mean you can't do anything - spreading the word and awareness is more than enough!
Though I do know how you feel..:(

Yes, I hope it gets better, soon. But it will not without our help..
Reply
:iconadrianasaysgeesus:
adrianasaysgeesus Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2010
Yeah. I know that, but what I mean is that I can't help personally... I have used my twitter to spread the word BUT I don't have -own- money to share or something like that.
And if I were older and already a doctor, I sure would be there helping.
I just wish I could be -more- useful.

You did what you can do, right?And that's what counts.
And, you will get to help, eventually.
Maybe not now, but, eventually, you will be able to do what other people, like you, won't be able to.:)
