Keep Breathing

While wasting time on the Web, as usual, I have been listening to this Ingrid Michaelson song on repeat for the last hour.

As I was listening to her words over and over again, I was reading articles about the horrific tornadoes that swept through the Midwest last night and looking at the pictures of the devastation, pictures of people surveying the damage and hugging their loved ones, and something hit me like a lightening bolt to the face.

We all work so hard to keep up with the Joneses.  We all want nice things.

It takes a tornado 60 seconds to rip all of that away from you.

When it comes right down to it, when such a tragedy happens, all you're going to care about is that your loved ones are still alive.

All the material things we work so hard to attain don't matter at all.

My heart is broken for all the people affected by yet another awful natural disaster.

Life sucks sometimes.

But like the song says, all we can do is keep breathing...
