On this side of the world, as I stand on my apartment balcony and look at another glorious morning sky, I can’t help but look far and think of the people in Haiti. I cannot fathom how they must be feeling right now and cannot imagine the pain and suffering of people who already suffered enough even before the massive earthquake that shook the capital city of Port-au-Prince.
I pray for the people of Haiti. An immediate call for help has been called in many parts of the world and the world listened. I can only hope that help will go through the proper channels and no one takes advantage of the situation, like what happened in the Philippines during the worst flood last year. So much of the international aid that came became supposedly undelivered and corrupted by local officials and never handed to the real victims. A volunteer for the government blogged about it, you can read the post pasted here since the original blog has been blocked. Let’s hope that doesn’t happen in Haiti – this country has suffered too much!
For the meantime, I’m counting my blessings that I have a roof over my head, my love ones intact and continue to pray for the people in devastated in Haiti and all the rescue workers. The raw scenes in these Haiti photos just breaks my heart.
God bless them all.
