    RR - I hope your family is well. Strength to you & your family.

    The pictures are almost overwhelming and I heard on the radio some reports that the death toll could push 500,000. This is a terrible combination of a powerful natural force hitting a very crowded area with poor construction. Let's hope that the relief efforts can help save some of the folks still trapped.

    I had the strangest experience. I didn't find out about the earthquake until yesterday morning, but I had the strangest dream the previous night, which was the night of the quake. In my dream, I was walking through a grey urban landscape, and all around me were very wrinkled, ragged, weary looking people. I don't remember what their skin color was, I think maybe they were grey too, but many of them were holding signs in front of their bodies as I walked past. All the signs had the same word, in a dark red, nearly black color: "HOPE".

    Some one I know on another board, who was there when he was in the navy, posted some pictures. The port is destroyed, getting supplies in is going to be very hard.
