Back to Good Karma

Welcome Friends! Here is a place for teachers, parents, librarians and writers to learn what's going on in the world of book author Karma Wilson.


34,073.  That’s a big, big number. I guess it’s relative how big the number is. If we’re talking about grains of sand or hair it seems not so big.

But when you associate that number with “human lives” it suddenly becomes huge, overwhelming, and terribly ominous.

34,073 is the current total of the earthquake victims in China.

Let’s all do something today–if we’re cut off in traffic or if the grocery store clerk is rude or if our children are bickering and ignoring what we ask them to do or if the electric bill seems way too high or if our husband/wife gives us a dirty look–let’s stop to think 34,073 and remember–things could be much worse.

And if you have a moment say a prayer for the families of all those victims.
