I have been trying to do a blog post all week. I wanted to talk about the earthquake in Haiti, but I find that I just don't know what to say. Such devastation! I feel so sorry for those people, and so helpless.
I can only watch for a few minutes at a time. But, I saw some idiot here in the U.S. get in front of a TV camera yesterday and claim that Obama hasn't responded quickly enough. Good grief! It's not as if we could just get in buses and trucks and drive to the devastated area, like we could have done after Katrina, and you know how long it took to respond in that little debacle.
Then, you have the very unchristian Pat Robertson claiming that the Haitians brought it on themselves for reasons that don't even bear repeating, so I won't. And how about the idiot Rush Limbaugh, suspecting that President Obama will make political hay out of the disaster. Those two people ought to be ashamed of themselves. Then again, we have to consider the source.
Just imagine having to live in a country like Haiti. The lucky ones are able to make $2.00 a day and others try to get by on $1.00 a day. Most of us, no matter how poor we think we are, simply cannot fathom the plight of those people.
Pray for them. Pray hard.
