Dame nature n’est pas tendre en ce moment / Nature is unkind these times

Un énorme courage aux victimes et sinistrés de la tempête Xynthia qui a frappé les 3/4 de la France et même l’Allemagne et également au Chili (notamment la ville et région de Conception) touché à son tour après Haïti par un très fort tremblement de terre, les éléments ne sont pas tendres en ce moment on pense à vous tous. Toutes mes condoléances aux gens qui ont perdu des proches. Courage gardez un grand espoir j’imagine que ça doit être dur à vivre et qu’il faudra du temps pour reconstruire et s’améliorer face à cela mais les choses iront mieux un peu plus tard soyez en sûr.

Courage keep faith and strong hope I guess it must be hard to live with it and it will take time to rebuild and improve but things will go better next be sure.
