My first response to the news about the effects of Typhoon Haiyan on the Philippines was feeling of despair and futility.
What right do I have to have food, a comfortable chair and working utilities when so many are suffering so badly?
The next, more rational response was that this seems to be a good time to visit the American Red Cross website. We can at least make use of our food, chairs and working utilities to support relief efforts.
When I calmed down, it hit me that another good response is to put in a plug for the November Long-Term Care Awareness Month campaign.
