HaitiPosted: January 12, 2011
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:
- NPR’s A Year of Challenges: Haiti After The Quake
- CBS’s Progress in Haiti 1 Year Later
- Take this quiz. For every person who takes the quiz, a child in Haiti will receive a warm meal.
I’ll be back later with a post about the usual stuff (snow, my daily outdoor adventure, etc.).
