Rena's blog, From Beirut with Love, is worth reading. If you still don't know what it is like to live through war, she'll describe it for you. And if you need to get a sense of the generosity, strength and humanity of the Lebanese people, she can provide you with that too.
I still haven't gotten to those letters I said I would write. My plan is to at least write some of them by the end of this weekend. Who cares if the letters aren't the tipping point. Too many people do not act because they think that they won't make a difference. Just by refusing to be numb, you are making a difference.
