EARTHQUAKE IN HAITI


The devastating 7.0 earthquake in Haiti last week has left 70,000 people dead and countless more homeless, hungry, and seriously injured. Former President Bill Clinton says, “I wish you could have seen what I saw. Haitians were performing surgeries at night, without lights, with no anesthesia, using vodka to sterilize equipment. It’s astonishing what they’ve been able to accomplish in such devastating conditions.” With all the devastation, it is easy to feel hopeless and turn away. But we all hold so much power to help these suffering people! CNN has compiled a comprehensive list of ways for us to reach out and bring comfort to the Haitians. In addition, take a look at how you can help one of my favorite organizations, Catholic Charities, through their excellent initiative, Catholic Relief Services. Please take a moment to help. You have no idea how much it can mean.
