    The Aftermath of The Earthquake in Haiti

    My prayers go out to the people of Haiti. I hope people are kind enough to dig in their pockets to help the relief effort. Estimates so far are 100,000 dead. Unbelievable. So sad.

    It is tragic. I noticed eBay is giving opportunities to donate to the Red Cross with just a click of a mouse if you buy something, which makes me feel useful because Rachel Maddow suggested it's the best way to help right now considering the unrest and the need for trained people to go there, not well-intentioned foreign citizens.

    It's so sad. There are a lot of Haitians here in Montreal because of the French, so quite a few of my friends have family there. Some of them don't have news...

    Very sad. An extremely poor country now has to recover from a monumental disaster.

    South Florida is the port of entry for Haitian's. Miami, just 700 miles from Port-au-Prince, has a large "little Haiti". We've already got a lot of emergency responders there on the ground helping. This is a disaster beyond imagination.

    This is something that has been eating me up. I am a God fearing person,but I have been having my doubts over the last two years. I cant wrap my brain around why people suffer so much. I see some of these celebrities who are rotten to the core living the life of riles, when you have people with good hearts who cannot catch a break. It really makes me wonder.
