    As the workers of Partners in Health know so well, he Haitian peoples have been enduring a state of emergency for so many decades–in a larger sense, several centuries, ever since the Europeans first colonized the land and dragged thousands of routinely kidnapped West Africans to labor, and see their children’s children labor, enslaved for the profit of their captors. That it takes a disaster of this magnitude to engage the active concern of more privileged folk worldwide is a wretched truth. But let this horrendous loss be at least the catalyst for a genuine longterm commitment by lots more organizations to assist the Haitian people in their efforts to build a sustainable future for the people,where is the help? from a shameful,underhandedness and corrupt government !!! The poor people of Haiti deserve more help! God bless them, and all who labor to help.Thanks Connie.

    I’m sorry that you have lived it and it’s a very sad experienceI’m sure most people do not realize the phenomenon.What I would say is that within a few years this kind of news will be daily.I am suspicious of all these propaganda that seeks to make donations … I was myself a volunteer with the Red Cross for Years and there are many "wrong messages" to merely obtaining money! which are not used to good purpose or hijacked and I find it disgusting..Take car my dear connie

    Thanks Jose for adding a comment on my blog. For our future, it gives me more to think about. The countries in Southest Asia are prone to such disaster. Philippines my country of origin, I just heard today that there a could be a possibility for an earthquake and I hope that it will not occur.Phillippines is one of the countries that lies near the earth plate. Really very dangerous. 1986 -1990 … this dangerous monster made a big big disaster in this country. Nothing we could do to prevent these calamities. I never ever forget in my life of experiencing an earthquake. I was very young then 7 years old but never ever have I forgotten this feeling of fear at that time. Then again in the late 1990s I was there with my family for a visit there was a light earthquake, just imagine you are in a building and everything shake around you. I can’t describe the how I felt.

    the Franco-German Arte TV presents an issue of geography such Schultraining but it is a very interesting teacher I can not remember his name.;??last Sunday I just watched a show he made to the title "the world map as a result of climate change" the geographic zonnes to what the next few Years will reach the level rises from the sea and droughts and of igh disasters…Unfortunately at the end of the show I had the impression that we have to get used to hear that countries Completely suffer such catastrophe and given that this is sad news for our future.Millions of people will face this kind of disaster thing never known by humankindOf course if it happen in a rich country would take over the impact more strong for the media !!!

    This appeal is not a must to anyone but helping comes from your heart. A 10 dollar help, is not much but I suppose it helps at least. Donation via text message from your cell phone is the easiest way to share your help. Let’s unite to help for the survival of Haiti against this monstrous disaster.

    You know Ray today,I stayed at home because I was not feeling well. But I took this chance to contact all my friends I know not only, here in Germany but in London and in the USA to join me and share a little of whatever they can. I can’t describe my deepest feelings of sympathy to all the people who were caught in these calamities.My thanks to you Ray.

    Yes Connie it’s true. This is a pivotal event in human history. This is an event that goes beyond religion and national borders. This is about us. Our species. Our ability to mobilize for the greater good. All by ourselves. Talk of god and prayer is utterly futile. Simple as that. After all the economic carnage of recent times and nations pulling back from globalization, this is a moment that requires total global involvement and commitment. We need to come together in times like this and think global. This is about our species. Our planet. Our collective survival.our childeren, brother and sisthers.Why don’t we just love one another and help mankind however we can, whether it’s financially, prayer, or going to Haiti yourself and physically helping . My heart goes out to these people. It could easily have happened here….Thanks Connie.

    My thoughts and prayers are my ways of showing my deepest sympathy ,share, give or donate is a step for me to help. No one on this earth deserves a disaster like these. My opinion. Thank you so much. Ray, John and Dewey for your views on my blog. My thanks for dropping in and for sharing me your precious time .My respect to you all. …Love ..connie

    Prayers are always needed, especially in time such as these. God is saying: "no matter what my child, I am with you, never will I leave you, never will I forsake you..

    Connie my dear friend,I did not mean that we shouldn’t give money, or that I wasn’t giving to help. This devastation happened in just a few hours, it can’t be fixed in a few hours. There will be plenty of time for donating for help. Everyone is rushing forward like the end is very near. I feel that a trust fund should be put in place and some one to trust to pay the bills, or the there will some great loss of revenue. So please do not believe that I feel there is no need for help.

    January 19, 2010 at 11:19 pm

  21. connie

    Hi Dewey, I don’t know what to say, without money you can’t buy no food, put your shelter in orderetc., please Of course a day or two would help a lot specially those who are in need most.How do you feel if you see these photos above,…these are all photos during the great flood in the Phillippines in Sept 2009. I do not have any word to express my deep feelings to all these people.

    I’m glad to see that relief is being sent to these people. I hope humanity realizes that we should trust in each other for support, instead of putting faith in the type of deity that would allow things like this to happen. Good thing god is good and loving, Makes me wonder how you could believe in such a god. Is a god punishing these people? Punishing them for what? What about the infants? What about the devout? If this was part of god’s plan, then don’t feel sorry for those people, they must have deserved it, right?Instead of only praying (which is simply an excuse to do nothing and think you are helping) donate to a secular charity/relief fund that will help these people…at least they are helping out of goodness, instead of helping because it will score brownie points in heaven.Thanks Connie.May god bless you

    Depending on the agency the money is donated to makes a big difference. The Red Cross uses only money it needs and any extra is used for their next project, the same is true for most Christain relief organizations. When these people need money they go public for it. Now is a time for sensibility and then what is goig to be done in the long run.

    January 19, 2010 at 5:30 pm

  24. Grandpa Dewey

    Connie,With all the monies being donated right now do you really believe we should be sending more? I am for helping out, however, this will be a long drawn out project. Order must be first, then health, food, shelter. There is no way that money will make things better in a day or two, the people must really step up and see that there is order. Let the volunteers do what they came there for. Looking at the news it is mass confusion.You are a great lady for asking for help, love you for doing so.

    Hello dear friends, maybe we could start to share a bit of help to Haiti . A little means a lot.
