Donations pour in for 9-year-old’s clean water cause after tragic accident
Nine-year-old Rachel Beckwith didn't live long enough to reach her goal of raising $300 to bring clean water to African villagers. She died in a 13-car accident on Interstate 90 in Bellevue, Wash., last week, the Seattle Times reported. Since then, hundreds of thousands of dollars have flowed into the charity page she set up shortly before her accident, with more than 9,000 people contributing $368,000 to Rachel's cause.
The 9-year-old told family and friends she didn't want presents for her June 12 birthday, only donations to the non-profit Charity Water.
"I found out that millions of people don't live to see their 5th birthday," Rachel wrote. "And why? Because they didn't have access to clean, safe water so I'm celebrating my birthday like never before. I'm asking from everyone I know to donate to my campaign instead of gifts for my birthday. Every penny of the money raised will go directly to fund freshwater projects in developing nations."
Rachel had only raised $220 by the time her birthday came, so she closed the page. But after the tragic accident, Rachel's pastor at Eastlake Community Church, Ryan Meeks, brought the page back up and publicized it on the church's website. As news of Rachel's cause spread, more and more people found and donated to Rachel's page, many leaving personal comments about how touched they were by her selflessness.
"Thank you for your generous heart and for inspiring such generosity in others," wrote an anonymous donor who gave $45 to the charity. Another donor who left $9 wrote: "Say hello to my Jesse."
Rachel's mother Samantha Paul posted on Monday that she was in "awe" of the flood of support. "In the face of unexplainable pain you have provided undeniable hope," she wrote. "I know Rachel is smiling!"

I feel it more than ever
And in this perfect weather
We’ll find a place together
In the water where I center my emotion
All the world can pass me by
Fly away on my zephyr
We’ll find a place together
-Red Hot Chili Peppers
Cause every night
I'm talking to the moon
Still trying to get to you
In hopes you're on
the other side
Talking to me too
Or am I a fool
who sits alone
Talking to the moon
I know you're somewhere out there
Somewhere far away
-Bruno Mars' Talking to the Moon

You guessed it. It was doomsday on my end.
I decided to bring the unit to Digital Hub to have it serviced under warranty.
Lo and behold, hope springs eternal, and my itouch is born again.
Alive and kickin' in its new pinky den.

piso circa 2004. only reminds me of je.
Thanks for paying a visit last night. Off to dreamland, it didn't do me any better. It was an awkward conversation i never would want to recall. Nevertheless, it was great seeing you again.
Then i woke up.
It's a gloomy misty Sunday.

there's too much pain for me to contain.

Now i am doomed.
It is pounding the hell in my sphere.
Poor princess. Tsk. tsk.
My maggy is back, with remaining 3 double action babies to throw.
Now i am afraid of myself.
I need a shock absorber, in its literal context of being a device for absorbing jolts and vibrations. My car had been a mess, i have been too lax in its maintenance due to financial constraints. Of course, i would if i have, if only. Add to that the strain of having to go through all the check-ups, repairs and maintenance alone. My solitary life :) lol. Now i think i also need a shock absorber to cushion the blows in me. Poor me. Poor lois.
Car registration, i need to get it done before the month ends. Sigh.
My car is burning the oil too. Me and my car both need an overhaul. Bring it on!
Now where do i get a mountain of moolah to get all of these done?
Oh God, bless me.

I am in definite chaos right now. The only thing that keeps me sane right at this moment is my youngest sister's birthday tomorrow. I need to bring myself alive the day after today. I get shivers picturing my sisters crying over my cold body in my dear Lai's natal day.
I really want to take a shot. Literally. Let alone my maggy with its double action baby conquer my sanity. A consummation i devoutly wished for.
How do i offer myself solace in this situation?

Last night was a struggle. The imminent danger of having a pain that isn't far away. Once in while, everything comes fresh, everything comes to life.
I was alone in my room recapping the voids of the half year that passed. I am such a mess, utterly depressed, mindedly stupid. While waiting for the shaman in me to exorcise the demons of pain, i couldn't help but cry harder for bearing the sorrow that has once again resurfaced.
I am deeply hurt. I could clearly feel it.
