I lack somewhat in the compassion department. I intelectually hear
the news... flooding, crop loss, disaster areas,... but I'm young
enough that I'm just desensitized to it.
"Blooms gone, tags gone, pods gone." I can feel that, on a gut
level. It's a succinct representation of the loss of what has been
acomplished and what has been hoped for.
Thanks for giving me perspective.
