Yeah. I've changed my mind about giving actual items cause they probably wont get there for a very long time, even though the U.S. government has taken control of the Port-Au-Prince airport.

Online donation it is.

What a horrible tragedy. I donated to the Red Cross, but like so many of have said, I wish I could do more. I want to work in Human Rights, so this sort of disaster will likely be part of my future career. Situations like this make me wonder if I could handle being there on the ground in that type of catastrophe, but there's nothing more that I want to do. Anyway, God bless all the people from all over the world donating money and especially those donating their time and resources in the rescue effort.

ETA. Also, fuck off Pat Robertson and Rush Limbaugh. Congratulations on out-douching yourselves...again.

I started to get really angry when I heard about Limbaugh and Robertson... however, sons of bitches though they are, this really isn't the time or place to get worked up about it. Good deeds, love, and generosity will be rewarded in the end over racist hatred.

I'm just happy to see this bringing out the best in many people, specifically Presidents Obama and Sarkozy, but also people all over the world who have been doing all they can. Humanity may have its flaws, but when I see so many people being generous like this, it makes me less misanthropic. Let's ignore the attention whores.

Amen!
This is the silver lining in the tragedy....

Gengel of Rutland, Mass. still missing in Haiti | NECN

wow. this really sucks. this girl's family was told she's alive only to be told later that she is still missing. i happened to be watching CNN when they interviewed her joyful dad right after he was told that she was alive. for some reason, this made my stomach turn.

Yeah, and whatever you may think of them; Brad and Angelina donated 1 million to the relief efforts. Wow. Other celebs have donated a lot of money too.
That's awesome. I think they did the same when Katrina happened.

It's too early to say, but maybe Brad Pitt will help Haiti architecturally the way he is with New Orleans.

It's a horrible situation in Port Au Prince, but completely starting over can be beneficial (if it's done right).

This is a very profound thought. Maybe this is the grand design of things that brings humanity together instead of the bickering of religion or politics.
If not then we are all doomed.
In the meantime, everyone should think about "but for the Grace of God or you're Higher Power, or the lack of - go I.

Edited to say: Under no circumstances do I believe this amount of suffering is handed down by God. I don't really know what the grand design is, but the God I believe in wouldn't do this to his people.

I agree Sue. I believe in my heart that God did not cause this....

This is a test for us, how we react. It is up to us to be an arm of God's love on this planet
And yes, it is wonderful to see the world pulling together...this really puts all things in perspective. Let's hope to goodwill lasts.

Speaking of being an instrument of goodwill and love,
I saw this story last night on CNN. Molly Hightower is/was from my backyard here in Washington State.
This is heartbreaking. She worked in a orphange in Haiti but did not make it. She was an angel on earth....
this is her blog...read it in her honor.

Not for one moment do I think Rush Limbaugh's comments are racist.

But I am deeply disappointed that he does seem to have a confirmed case of Obama Derangement Syndrome. He is doing exactly what Bush detractors did for 8 years. Criticize the president's every action putting the president in a damned if you do, damned if you don't situation.

I agree with Rush in hoping that President Obama fails in implementing most of his foreign and domestic agenda. But I hope he succeeds when I feel his actions are serving the best interests of the country. And I have seen absolutely nothing to criticize in the way the president has handled the tragedy in Haiti.

I'm proud of the way Americans have reacted to this disaster, from every kid donating a quarter at his grade school, to the quick response of our armed forces, from corporations to private charities, to the leadership of the president.

Give it a rest Rush.

I just found out today that my friend Evan and 2 of his other friends are going to Haiti to help out. I don't know the full details, but he is a such a great person for volunteering his time to help those in need.
