The terrible destruction and numbers of dead, injured, or still trapped in Haiti after the earthquake and after-shocks are mind-numbing. The poorest country in the western hemisphere has been made so much worse after few seconds of the ground shaking.

If you can afford it, donate something to a group that can put people on the ground to help: The Red Cross, Doctors Without Borders, Mercy Corps International come immediately to mind, but there are others.

Image being trapped in the rubble of your house, not knowing if somebody is coming to dig you out. Or having every home in your neighborhood flattened. Or seeing dead people piled up on the street like firewood.

I think Pat Robertson is full of shit to his eyeballs, but his organization is sending a lot of money to Haiti.

Actions speak louder than words.
