100s, 1,000s, Millions...

There isn't anything quite like a challenge. Just think of all the silent people in this world. We met some of them on December 26th, a few thousand more in Darfur and Niger, and a handful more with Katrina, Longwang and Wilma (see a more complete listing in the sidebar), now suddenly another nameless horde in Kashmir, joined by the victims of man's inhumanity to man including the 2100+ dead American soldiers (and their families) and the 40,000+ Iraqi's who have died with them - and their families!

These are those that burst their way into our our narrow worlds. Can we begin to imagine the others; those who have not yet impinged upon our consciences, and so are yet to become part of our conscious.
