My heart breaks even more today reading about all those who have been affected by the earthquake in Mexico. "Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto said late on Tuesday more than 20 children and two adults had been found dead at the school, Colegio Enrique Rebsamen, in the neighborhood of Coapa. Another 30 children and 12 adults were missing, he said."-HuffPost Please keep praying, it may not seem like much right now, but Mexico needs our prayers and our energy and our help. 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻 #FuerzaMexico #PrayForMexico #OremosPorMexico 🇲🇽🇲🇽🇲🇽

I believe the earth is sending us multiple "wake up" calls! Sending love & prayers throughout our planet to accompany those going through hardship and loss. Our solidarity, hope and support are with Mexico after the terrible earthquake they've suffered and strength to Puerto Rico for the impending storm. I hope everyone there and anywhere in hurricane Maria's path finds a safe place to ride it out and praying that it somehow veers away...🙏🏻🌎🙏🏻🌎🙏🏻🌎 Creo que la tierra nos está enviando varios mensajes para que despertemos! Enviando amor y oraciones por todo el planeta para acompañar a los que están pasando por dificultades y pérdidas. Solidaridad, esperanza y apoyo para México después del terrible temblor que han sufrido y fuerza para Puerto Rico por la tormenta que se acerca. Ojalá que ellos y todos los que están en el paso del huracán Maria encuentren un lugar seguro y orando para que se desvíe si es posible. 🙏🏻🌎🙏🏻🌎
