Carole King said it best when she sang, “I feel the earth move under my feet,” except I was asleep. Yes there was an earthquake in the Los Angeles area. Thank God, everyone is safe and there is no damage here. Pictures are a little crooked and a cabinet in the kitchen opened (oh and I was up well before the alarm!).
I pray that all of those who felt the quake are unharmed in body and physical structures remain strong. (Thanks to all of those near and far who checked in).
And this morning I marvel at social media. I am grateful to have a tool that enables me to know that people who I know are safe. My mind quickly goes back to September 11, 2001 when AOL Instant Messenger and email were the only reliable means of communication in New York City and I was able to connect with MY SISTER a about 20 blocks downtown, email my parents, and inform others my location.
If someone needs help and has access to social media I hope they will use it just as it is important to let others know all is okay.
