Hardship in Haiti

Hilary Clinton was scheduled to visit New Zealand until the earthquake hit Haiti, which is all over our news. What an unimaginable tragedy. It's hard to understand how such an enormous disaster should happen in one of the poorest nations on earth. Makes us feel pretty far removed from the challenges and hardship people face -- not just after something like this happens, but the struggles that many people deal with every day for basic necessities such as food and shelter.

It definitely is a very sad state of affairs in Haiti. Very hard to imagine the depth of their loss--almost too sad to contemplate. One can leave a donation via the American Red Cross which I think is good. So many human lives lost and so many without their loved ones. Jeez.
