life is so fragile..

This story happened last week, to be exact was on Good-Friday. When tornadoes touch down at my city. It was a huge mess, so devastating to see resident lost their property, the tornadoes blew everything away, our International Airport was shutdown for weekend. The report said that Good-Friday storm was the worst the region has seen in more than 40 years. People are going to remember this for a long time. :(

My heart's broken when i passed the tornadoes-area this morning, which is just 5 minutes away from my place damage was significant, many homes destroyed with major damages. That give me a real lesson, that life is so fragile. Life just turn up side down in a second. to get more information about 'good-Friday' tornadoes or like to make any donation please check this website : KSDK.COM or AmericanRedCross

Hi Fitri,
I hope you and your family are well, happy and safe. I'm so sorry to hear about the natural disaster. It saddens me, just as what had happened in Japan. I hope the postcards in some way cheers you up.

Much love,
