Disclaimer: It has been my habit, we’ll, to be honest, before facebook, that I take part on some ‘unfortunate incident’ even without me physically being involved like hands-on reaching out to those in needs. I aint superman, can’t fly to a city, or a place, etc… I try to reach out via blogging. (and now, facebooking for most i guess.) I believe forwarding or letting my “network” of people know is enough. Again, let’s keep everybody posted…
