Recently two enormous tragedies struck China and Burma. China suffered a serious 7.8 magnitude earthquake in Sichuan that killed tens of thousands of people. And in Myanmar (Burma), Cyclone Nargis ravaged the coast and also killed tens of thousands of people.
Disasters on this scale boggle the senses. The sheer amount of destruction is overwhelming, and the cost in human life cannot be calculated. I know that people at Google have tried to help in many different ways. I appreciate that there is a donation page for charities to help in China and for charities to help in Burma. We are all in this world together, and I urge people to do what they can to help the people in China and Burma in this time of need. My thoughts and sympathy goes out to the families affected by these catastrophes.
