Humbling

I simply can't imagine what the people of Haiti are going through right now. A little earlier today, I was watching CNN and listening to an audio report by Anderson Cooper who was talking about the mass graves where no attempt at identification was made before bodies were placed there. How sad. It's such a tragic situation.

I'm hopeful the help these people need will get there soon.

I'm sure by now that those who would donate to a humanitarian support mission have done so by now. I know that my family has. We gave what we could to MSF (Doctors Without Borders). They really do excellent work. I'm amazed at the generosity of doctors and nurses who donate their time or make careers of working in such extreme conditions. I wish them well and pray for their safety.

Hello Rudee, such tragic times. Thank you for passing this information onwards. I am lighting a candle for Haiti and the Doctors without borders team.

How sad, the mass graves will make it very hard for fam. members to know who is still alive...
Glad Haiti now gets a lot of help of other countries.

That is the charity we donate to, Doctors without Borders. I am in awe of them.

That's my charity of choice as well and we've done our bit too. I heard tonight that they have had to fold up their tents and abandon some patients because of impending violence. If their safety can't be guaranteed they can't do their work. I am just sick watching this stuff and thankful for were I live. I'm not whining these days...ciao

I need to donate today. I wasn't sure if I was going to use Red Cross or Doctors without borders. They are both good and in a position to help. Such sadness and suffering.

I need to go make my donation now!
