Typhoon Haiyan: United Nations Death toll at 4,460

Nov. 15, 2013 - "The United Nations has put the latest death toll in the typhoon-ravaged central Philippines at 4,460 -- almost double the last official number given...The Philippines government, however, say the disaster has risen by three to 2,360..." ~ from  The Telegraph

Be still, my soul: the Lord is on thy side!
Bear patiently the cross of grief or pain;
Leave to your God to order and provide;
In every change, the faithful will remain.
Be still, my soul:thy best, thy heavenly friend,
Through thorny ways leads to a joyful end. ~

by Katharina Amalia Dorothea von Schlegel, 1752
