Horrors in Haiti

It sure is hard to watch the coverage of the earthquake aftermath in Haiti. These disasters can bring out the best in people. Every where I have been in the past few days has had some sort of collection set up so people could give to the Red Cross. Unfortunately, the worst comes out, too,
just adding so needlessly to to the suffering--bogus 'relief' agencies, price gouging and black markets. Nature can be cruel enough; it seems like human beings ought to come together in a situation like this.

  1. It always astounds me that people would be cruel enough to take advantage of people in this kind of situation.

    David Brooks piece in the New York Times is really thought provoking. I have a link to it on my blog.

  2. 98% of us do come together in a good way but that 2% gives me the willies. I will NEVER understand their mentality.

I appreciate readers' comments so much. You don't even always have to agree with me.
