I really don’t know what’s going on. I get really freaked out every time we have any kind of inclimate weather, from the craptons of snow we got this winter to the flooding in our state this past week. And now this earthquake/tsunami combo in Japan… it just really, really freaks me out, and it makes me wonder if anyone else is scared, too. I don’t study geology or anything, so I can’t tell you the physics behind this stuff (beyond whatever was in An Inconvenient Truth), but I think that all of us can feel it. I don’t think the world is ending. 2012 is preposterous and I think it’s just stupid that people can believe in that. But we really need to look at what we’re doing to this world… we can pray all we want, but we also have to take action.
I have friends in Japan and I’ve texted my friends who’ve heard that they’re all okay, but I can’t help but wonder what it’s like for those who haven’t heard back, or worse, have heard back and received bad news.
It also pisses me off that while everyone on Tumblr is freaking out, posting links to donation websites and generally spreading awareness, not one of my Facebook friends has posted a status about it, and when I do nobody likes it. Jesus fuck people. Empathy.
I'm gonna go express myself in more creative outlets.
In other news my followers seem to have disappeared, but hopefully this message reaches people anyway.
You can also donate to Doctors Without Borders here, or text REDCROSS to 90999 to automatically donate $10 to the Red Cross, although I've heard rumors about the Red Cross being discriminate in their help, so I'd go with the Doctors Without Borders link if you have the means to do so.
