This is a guest post by Warrior Sonya Audet in Surat Thani in response to the Petals of Compassion organizations efforts to build a village in Nepal .
Why do you look the other way...
when this could have happened to you today?
No grief, no pain, no satisfaction.
Headlines are written to cause a reaction.
You think to yourself, "It'll never happen to me."
But then, there in the crowd, who do you see?
It could be an acquaintance or even an old friend.
Someone you'd call up and see every weekend.
In moments of panic it all seems so surreal,
until you watch someone suffer and don't know how to feel.
Are you relieved it's not you? Do you feel sadness or shame?
Some people reach out to help. Would you do the same?
Thanks to all of our friends near and far that have allowed us to showcase their work.
