Worried and addled

(If you've been waiting to get The Wonder Weeks for yourself or for friends, now's the time. They're selling it for $20 (inculding S&H) until March 27 at http://www.thewonderweeks.com.)

I am so worried and preoccupied about the nuclear reactors in Japan, and the people without homes and water and shelter. It's cold there, and I'm thinking about all the parents who are desperate to give their children something to drink and eat and to keep them warm while they figure out what next.

It's making it hard for me to concentrate on the things I need to do, and on helping anyone else.

Head down, shoulder to the wheel, push through.

Be strong for the kids.

What's up with you?
