What pure love and bravery from someone so young.
My heart goes out to all who have suffered in this disaster.

At the link I gave you could see Jordan's picture.

The pictures are what get me sad.

I think the world's going to be a poorer place for not having this valiant young man in it anymore.


I think Jon Stewart said it best on Monday night. (He was talking about the shooting in Arizonia but it can apply to any disaster to a certain extent.)

"Someone or something will shatter our world again and wouldn't it be a shame if we didnt take this opportunity to make the world we are rebuilding, that will ultimately be shattered by another moment of destruction, be a better one then the one we had before."

Its okay to FEEL something. I tried talking about this with some people I know and they gave me a blank look like to say " Why should I care? "...
Its a inspiring and tragic story...

As soon as I was reading the title, I was already starting to cry...

I pass the word here, I received suggestion from my friend in the Marines, in Virginia, to partecipate to this globa event in honor of Jordan and other victims of the Queensland floods:

- Wear something black in their honor on January 25 2011
