Through our travels the world becomes smaller, and we meet many wonderful people. When tragedy hits faraway lands, having visited there makes those events much more real. The fire in Notre Dame, political unrest in a third world country or natural disasters become more personal.

Robin and I previously traveled through some of the area hit hardest by this week’s Moroccan earthquakes. Thousands of people died, many more were injured, and ancient cities and villages were reduced to rubble.
