Exactly. Case in point: when the earthquake hit in Iran, the shockwave was felt as far as India. My company has associates in India, and they had to evacuate the building. We were worried about them--not just from a company standpoint, but because even though we've never met, we share a common bond. It was a relief to have them come back after the all-clear was given to them--again, not just because of work, but because they are our friends and co-workers.

It is sad, though, that we see it so much more. At work, I'm bombarded with images--our command center (centre) has CNN, Fox News, Bloomberg, and the Weather Channel going 24x7. Is it any wonder that, after watching what humans and nature can do, after I come home all I want to do is play computer games, knit, or play with my cats?

I feel for everyone this week. It has been a heavy load for all.
