Garibay Soup: Just Like That

Just Like That

You could be sitting in your home, with your family, warm, smiling, all is well. In the blink of any eye your entire world can end up in shambles all around you.


My heart has literally been aching for them. Seeing the babies being pulled out of the rubble. Watching moms scream out. Hearing of the thousands of dead bodies just being tossed into dump trucks with no regard. The millions of people that's lives have been shattered.

Last night I layed in my extremely comfortable bed, my down comforter hugging me as I started to drift off, and it's then that I realized Just Like That... we could be sleeping on the streets with all of our possessions crushed. Just like that, we could be down on our knees pleading for God to answer the millions of prayers for the disaster that just ruined not only our life, but the lives of millions of people.  Just like that, your life as you know it could be over.

For some reason I don't think a disaster like this has hit me as hard as this has hit me. Maybe it's the babies, the children, the anguish I see in mother's eyes. Maybe it's the fact that there's millions of people feeling hopeless, and missing their loved ones, not knowing if their loved ones are dead or alive, or buried in rubble..  I don't know what it is, but I've shed many tears, said many prayers.

It's just unimaginable, isn't it? I wish I could help somehow.
