Just wanted to connect with you all out there and say human being to human being, I feel the same as you do. Helpless. Sent the money I would have spent to a nice dinner out. What good does that drop in the hat do? So prayer, yes.
Here is a link to Tara and Troy, who are doing ministry work in Haiti and are caught in the catastrophe. I found it via Hope at "A Song Not Scored for Breathing" (she's on my blog roll). Tara is blogging from the streets of Port-au-Prince.
My hubby and I lived through the '94 earthquake in our city of Northridge, when a portion of Los Angeles buckled and went dark. We know what the upheaval of the Earth is like and what the aftermath is like. It is very long. What's happening in Haiti is immeasurably worse.
God, the Creator of the Universe, bless us all.
Six years ago, I clinged to a chain-link fence in an alley of my small hometown, as the earth shook again. The heaving of the ground is indescribable. I clinged to the shaking fence and watched the building in front of me collapse on my friends. Made of brick and mortar, two stories tall, it simply crumpled in slow motion and crushed those people.
Please don't stop following what's happening in Haiti. It has only begun.
