Good luck! I read a heartbreaking story of an airport worker in Salt Lake who has lost 8 of his family members in the disaster. He helped load food and supplies going to Samoa from the church and wrote notes of love on the boxes. Disasters always seem so far away, but they affect real people's lives.
