Thoughts of Haiti
While I spent the day here with my little guys, my thoughts were on the news rolling in from Haiti. We have many dear friends from our day in Miami who have relatives in Haiti and who can not get in touch with them. I wish I could hop on a plane right now and get in the action myself, if just to hold some of those kids on my lap and sing them songs. I read that the night of the earthquake everyone gathered in the streets (there was no electricity) and broke into hymns. That image brings such comfort in the wake of such disaster.
There are so many places to donate. One of those is LDS Humanitarian Servies, which already has supplies on-hand and has sent its first air-lift to Haiti already. There is no overhead (all workers are volunteer) so 100 percent of the profits go to helping in disaster relief. You can read an article about what the church is doing and donate here:
My prayers are with them, as I’m sure yours are as well.
