Indonesian earthquake

On Saturday, 27 May an earthquake of magnitude 6.3 struck an area on the island of Java in the country of Indonesia. Many thousands of people were injured and estimates of at least 5,200 dead. It's just heart-wrenching. Of course the country had to deal with the earthquake and tsunami in December 2004 and I really can't imagine what life is like for those living there at this time. Hopefully aid will get through to those who need it quickly. I hope to be able to contribute a donation to our local Red Cross and encourage anyone reading this to join in the efforts if able and willing to.
