    I wish I was in Veracruz today, instead of Cancun last year. The quake would have given me a convenient excuse for why I puked up all that tequila. But alas, the timing was not on my side.

    VERY DISGUSTING PEOPLE (racists, bigots, "opinionated" people). WHEN THE TIME COMES, YOU WILL ALL BE THE ONES TO SUFFER THE MOST. BLACKS?? MEXICANS??? WHITES???? SAAAAAAAAAAAAAAME Shi* YOU A HOLES. When will the ignorance end??? When will all these idiots perish??? Oh how I WISH poeple in America- and all over the world- would change the way they think/what they grew up learning/how they see INDIVIDUAL people. Someday, it will all be repaid in full. My prayers go out to ALL people suffering anywhere in the world.

    With all of these natural disasters occurring so frequently and so severly, throughout the world, it seems to indicate that we truly are living in the "End Times." Lesson to be learned: appreciate and enjoy what you have, while you still have it (family, friends, etc) – because you just never know.
