God Bless Haiti

On January 12, 2010, the Caribbean nation of Haiti, a small island of about 9 million people, was struck by a 7.0 earthquake, which devastated the capital, Port-au-Prince and left, at last count, approximately 150, 000 Haitians dead. Although there have been a small number of people miraculously rescued from the rubble after 2 weeks, much of what is happening there speaks to the depth of tragedy that has occured. There is widespread starvation and survivors are dying from treatable injuries due to overcrowding of hospitals and lack of medical resources and equipment. Please do right by the strong, resilient citizens of Haiti by not only keeping them in your prayers, but also donating through the Red Cross or any reputable charity of your choice. Thank you, dear readers.
