We are trying to honor the unfolding catastrophe in Haiti by being mindful of our circumstances: fresh water, house, food, ordinary lives. That seems to be a way to have the children aware of things, without having them be traumatized by the images in the media. I think about the kids in Haiti who will have this in their minds for the rest of their lives.

But I can't believe it's taking so long to get aid in. Didn't Katrina give us any tools to do it better (at least faster) this time around?


  1. That is SUCH a good question!!!

  2. Unfortunately, the thought has occurred to me that if we're STILL working on Louisiana and Mississippi, how are we EVER going to rebuild Haiti? But of course we must . . . so I hope we HAVE learned something.
