Help Haiti.

As I watch heartbreaking footage from Haiti, my heart is so heavy for the Haitian people. I am just at a loss for words, all I’ve been able to do is just pray. A country that is no bigger than the state of Maryland lives in 80% poverty. They had so little to begin with and have now lost that. I don’t think our American brains can even begin to understand.
I just wanted to say that we need to keep EVERYONE involved with relief efforts…from our President, to Red Cross volunteers, our military, medical personnel, etc, and most important the Haitian people and their government in our prayers. With what seems like all communications down, Haitian’s here helplessly are watching TV and waiting to hear if their families are safe. They need our prayers as well.
If you feel you need to do more, you can also donate through the American Red Cross to their International Repsonse Fund. The minimum donation is just $10.00. I’ve already made our donation.
I’m not trying to sound preachy…but I was getting so sick of everyone complaining about the cold weather and the snow. Well, atleast we didn’t have to spend the night on the streets last night wondering if our family members are somehow still alive. A little bit of cold and snow isn’t going to hurt anyone! Besides, we will all just be complaining about it being 90 degrees in a few months…it’s a never-ending cycle. Ok, off my soapbox.
