I'm so sorry for what's happened. Beyond words. Have been watching things
from Caracas on CNN since disaster struck, and can tell you we here are
wholeheartedly with you. Also people from all over the world.
Good questions that you pose.
What's difficult and painful may be the answers.
Take much care of yourself!
