Even if the rains were to start immediately, for many regions affected by this drought there is no likelihood of improvement until 2012. Food prices have also risen substantially in the region, pushing many moderately poor households over the edge. Save the Children staff working in Kenya’s largest refugee camp says hundreds of children are arriving daily from Somalia exhausted, malnourished and dehydrated. In case you were wondering if there is any way to help, one of the biggest obstacles is money, so every dollar would help and The Humanitarian Coalition knows just what to to do with it.

And he descended upon Arda in power and majesty greater than any other of the Valar, as a mountain that wades in the sea and has its head above the clouds and is clad in ice and crowned with smoke and fire; and the light of the eyes of Melkor was like a flame that withers with heat and pierces with a deadly cold..." from the AINULINDALË, the Silmarilion.

"...Then Morgoth hurled aloft Grond, the Hammer of the Underworld, and swung it down like a bolt of thunder. But Fingolfin sprang aside, and Grond rent a mighty pit in the earth, whence smoke and fire darted. Many times Morgoth essayed to smite him, and each time Fingolfin leaped away, as a 'lightning shoots from under a dark cloud; and he wounded Morgoth with seven wounds, and seven times Morgoth gave a cry of anguish...."

R. R. Tolkien. In this painting, Lúthien and Huan, Hound of Valinor wait for Beren to wake after healing the poisoned wound Carcharoth the werewolf left him when biting off his hand. The Great eagles placed the spent couple on the edge of Doriath looking north past Gondolin, over Sauron’s Isle, which Luthien destroyed and left in ruin. "And at the last the eagles set them down upon the borders of Doriath; and... Huan came to her, and together they tended Beren, even as before when she healed him of the wound that Curufin gave to him. But this wound was fell and poisonous. Long Beren lay, and his spirit wandered upon the dark borders of death, knowing every an anguish that pursued him from dream to dream." chapter 19, The Silmarillion. Mon, 25 Jul 2011 15:06:27 -0400
