Pray for Nepal

I’m not a religious person. I was never baptised, nor do I go to any church or place of worship. Although since the earthquake in Nepal on Saturday, I’m finding that I’m constantly praying, talking out loud to whatever greater being is out there listening to me. The effects of what has happened in Nepal over the weekend are beyond devastating. It’s gut-wrenching and hard to comprehend how something so devastating can happen to a country and people who are so beautiful and pure. Scientifically, it’s easy to comprehend, but on a scale of belief, I don’t think I’d be alone in saying that I just can’t get my head around it. Nepal is a country that is always going to hold a special place in my heart. The spiritual experience that I gained in Nepal is something that anyone who has been to Nepal can relate to. While the country itself is abound by beauty, it’s the people that make you want to return to Nepal time and time again. This is why we really need to band together as one and help Nepal rebuild itself. For a list of foundations who are accepting donations for Nepal please go to CNNwebsite.
