To call the situation desperate is a fallacy. I can not fathom it. I want to help, but aside from pulling out my check book and sending in the few dollars I can spare, there really isn't anything I can do.
I recognize that in the world there is much suffering. That everyday while I clean my room and do the laundry, grocery shop and procrastinate, that someone somewhere...no people in many places are suffering unthinkable hardships. But those things are not on the news everyday.
Today my thoughts are with the people of Haiti. May God bless them. And may the able countries of the world continue to rush to Haiti's aid.
