We interrupt this self-indulgence for a reality check

Written by , Posted in Random

Okay, I’ve just had the most amazing birthday ever. And in a couple of days I’ll post about it. But as I’m getting my feet back on the ground, and getting caught up on all the news, I’m going into a bit of shock. I’ve seen some articles online, and listened to pod casts, but wow. I can’t believe what’s going on in Haiti. I spent four years working in domestic emergency management, and yet I just can’t imagine dealing with an emergency on this scale. It’s disturbing and heartbreaking and frustrating. 

Some people are suggesting the Haitians brought it on themselves, or suggesting that we shouldn’t help them, and that makes me even sadder. When a man can’t even find it in himself to offer compassion in these situations, how can he call himself a human? I keep hoping as I weed through back articles online I’ll see that things are getting better, but I don’t have a lot of hope for that right now.
