I was running late this morning – didn’t have time to listen to the TV. I had lesson plans for the day on my mind, and didn’t even turn the car radio on during the drive to work, as I usually do.
So, the news of the massive earth quake and tsunami that rocked Japan was a total shock.
It was a regular Friday and my class took its break at about 10:00 a.m. I was on my way to get a cup of coffee and a bagel from the deli (in our university library) when I saw the CNN “Breaking News” .
Waves as high as 30 feet! The sea’s current was as fast as a bullet from a gun, forcing waves to push over everything – drowning everything in its path.
Homes forced into unthinkable clusters, tossed like seaweed. Images of roads and buildings heaving and breaking and heaving and breaking…..
Fires everywhere sparked by explosions. I think Hell would look calmer.
I’m upset tonight. Those poor people…. It’s like the earthquake is in me, rocking my emotions…
It is a sad, sad day.
The Casey Anthony Case
Discovery documents were released today in the case against Casey Anthony. I’ve read most of them, though I hardly feel up to writing about it right now…. Maybe later.
