A SUNDAY MORNING SIDEWALK, Sunday November 10, 2013

A sampling of news from the world..



The horror in the Philippines is almost too much to grasp..10,000 dead from a storm? It could be that high, or higher. Yes, mother nature is cruel.. but we're told God is not. And if He's not, I urge someone to tell me why such events like this one happen..

The death toll from the superstorm in the Philippines could reach upwards of 10,000 people. There have been some who believe it may actually end up being even higher than that..
One witness described Haiyan of being like a tsunami..
The situation is dire, but with the conditions and lack of power, it will be some time before a true accounting of the devastation is actually known.



Haiyan is now on to Vietnam, where 6.5 million people are preparing and 170,000 soldiers have been drafted to reinforce homes ..
And another tropical threat is coming to the Philippines..

You felt like home in it.. I think people will one day miss movies this way. Same way I say we'll miss bookstores too..
