Red Cross - Red Crescent united donation April 21; China's Generousity

The recent shooting at Fort Hood in Texas, the ferry turning over, the shootings at the Jewish center, are all examples of our world being too ill with stress.

We’d been sailing for nearly three months at this point, and I had no interest in returning. Ever.  I suppose that was a foreshadowing of things to come. If only we ever know those as they…
