Comparatively Speaking....

Everything just got put into perspective for us today.
What happened to our house, is NOTHING....

...compared to what just happened in Haiti.

I just can't even imagine!
Of course, since we don't have cable, Del and I found out about this WAY later than the rest of the world. But, the one thing that I have been blown away by is the response of people on Twitter and Facebook. If you are wondering about ways to get involved or to give, here are some snippets of things people have written and links to follow for those of you that want to help in some way. I'm blown away at the organization that have stepped up to the plate and the groups of people that are getting involved. You are truly being the hands and feet of Christ!

*cool stuff....AMERICAN AIRLINES is taking doctors and nurses to Haiti for free. Call 212-697-9767. Spread word.... Pierre Garcon's plea.

*My friend (& local news reporter) Trish did a blog entry on Haiti w/ links to organizations you can help through:
