Kathryn over at Reinventing the Event Horizon has asked that we post and pray for Haiti today.  Today, as you probably know, is the one year anniversary of the 7.0 magnitude earthquake that devastated the capitol city, Port-au-Prince.

Last night PBS ran a series of programs about Haiti.  I was able to catch Frontline’s Battle for Haiti, a look at the connection between gang violence, gangs, and politicians, and how this impacts the rebuilding of Haiti.  It was a pretty bleak picture.  You can watch the program at the link provided.

A few links for more information:

I’ll be back later with a post about the usual stuff (snow, my daily outdoor adventure, etc.).

      You’re welcome, Kathy.

      I wanted to do something. Because it’s such an overwhelming situation, I wasn’t sure what to do in terms of a post so I decided to keep it fairly simple. I’ve seen the pictures, read the stories, watched the videos and still… I can barely begin to imagine what it must be like for the poor people of Haiti.

  2. We shouldn’t forget about Haiti–thanks for this.

    I watched a documentary on this terrible state of affairs, so many people still living in unbearable conditions, yet they do bear them, while the organisations involved in their recovery seem to be finding it hard to correlate all that need s to be done… a tragedy it was and a tragedy it still is to the Haitians … and after bearing all this they face it with dignity. Amazing, and heartbreaking too… xPenx
