What are we looking at, Penny?
Isn't it amazing how little mention there is in blogland about Pakistan. If this had happened on this scale anywhere else on the globe would it have been quite so ignored? Remember Katrina? Remember the oil in the Gulf?This is a disaster on an epic scale yet we hear nothing and see nothing except on the news in the UK.
i agree we are not hearing enough and not enough International Emergency Aid is being sent.Simply stated Jinsky, which is perfect because this is simply awful.xxm
Thanks for bringing this topic to light. Personally seeing the devistating power of water on a small scale, I can't imagine the sadness of folks trying to survive flooding.
I saw a photo of an elderly woman sitting in the medst of it, just staring with hopeless eyes.
So sad to see, Penny! One feels so utterly helpless in viewing this deluge. Then I think: maybe, if everyone of us is adding just a drop of help - but no, that picture is wrong: one tiniest ray of warm help - that will be a start.
This disaster is on such a scale that it seems to have stunned the world into inaction .
It looks so beautiful until you realise what it means. How is Pakistan ever going to recover?
It's a heartbreaker, isn't it? Such a tragedy.
You really nailed this..hard times keep happening!
Heartbreaking what is going on in Pakistan. My prayers are with the people.
So true, Jinksy.
It is difficult to comprehend how such a huge tract of land can be flooded in this way. So many factors seem to be affecting the global response.
Such a simple and stunning haiku, Jinksy, beautifully written! Water droplets...so lovely on their own, yet such devastation they've brought to Pakistan. Our hearts break for its people...Lynette
I cannot imagine what it must be like to have so little in the first place and then to lose it to flood waters. I fear the worst may yet be to come with spreading disease. The faces of the people suffering are haunting.
a whole country drowns - and help is delayed for whatever reason - wonder how pakistan will recover from this
Very moving haiku and photo... Thanks for stopping by...
Wow, you have captured the evening news...with these few words Jinksy...blessings...bkm
So little is said, and so much was meant. Wonderful my dear (Freddie Mercury voice lol)
I thought it was New Orleans and Katrina but now I see it's Pakistan
I think we're all just overwhelmed by all the major tragedies lately. I feel like I've been just giving and giving and therefore was a little slow with giving this time. Now I'm ashamed- but at last have given to Doctors Without Borders. If we all just give a drop maybe we can make a difference.Barbara
It is heartbreaking; so sad!
