Observation from my lofty perch of comfort

The things I find inconvenient are not so bothersome at this point when I see all the suffering in Haiti. I understand better what comfort surrounds me in this world of natural and man made disasters. I’ve never been truly tried by nature, all my trials have been self-imposed. I never wish to suffer as deeply as I have seen and I don’t know if the self-awareness is a shield of hubris.
