Port-au-Prince, Haiti.Image by glasshalffull91 via Flickr

I feel like a million pounds have been lifted off of my shoulders, this morning. The earthquake that hit Haiti yesterday afternoon hit very close to home for many of us. I have a cousin who was visiting family in Haiti for the past couple of weeks. Unsuspecting of the events that were about to take place, he boarded a flight back to his hometown in Canada approximately 45 minutes before the earthquake hit yesterday afternoon. I, however do have other family members in the devastated land but thanks to God, they are alive and well. This much cannot be said of many people who are injured, still trapped under the rubbles or dead. The devastation in Port-Au-Prince is surreal. But for many it is as real as it gets. Now more then ever, the people of this country that I had the privilege to serve in last year and learned to love need our help. If you wish to donate here are some organizations that I trust.

Just a thought...

"For beautiful eyes, look for the good in other; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone."
