For me, I can not watch what is going on in Haiti for very long because I feel so helpless. There is just no way to stop all of the suffering and destruction in the blink of an eye. It seems like it takes so long to get them the help they need. Yet everyone is doing the best they can to help them. Watching the people suffer and see so many that have been injured and the ones that have died is just too heart wrenching for me. I wish I could wave a magic wand and fix everything for them but I can’t, no one can. All we can do is donate and keep them in our prayers.
We have many heroes in this country and countries all over the world that have sent their best search and rescue teams, doctors and nurses, engineers, construction workers and more to help them. These men and women are true heroes they don’t think about the dangers or anything else, just how they can help. We should keep them in our prayers to keep them safe and healthy in this horrific disaster. My heart goes out to everyone over there in Haiti and I sending them my prayers, my love and lots Angels to comfort them and hold them in their wings.
