The tragedy in Haiti breaks my heart. It’s hard not to feel helpless, to see the overwhelming destruction and need and have so little of practical use to offer. There is so much pain and suffering, and once again, it looks like the response to Katrina — lots of sturm und drang and very little actually getting accomplished.
I find myself wishing to gain some useful knowledge — get a paramedic’s certificate or learn search and rescue for the next time — and there will be a next time. There always is. Father, be with Your children in Haiti and help those who come to help do the job right. Amen.
