Yes, Barbara, sadly I have to agree with you. I can also add my personal sadnesses to this. and in the loght of this, I've decided to make this year better, even if there are things simply to be accepted.Ronelle
It is such a terrible thing what these people have suffered, just as things were starting to look better, and continue to suffer.
I was watching the news and thinking about how the Haitians have had to accept this as their new daily reality--I don't know how they do it. It's so tragic. It makes me think about how very fortunate I am.
I sent a box via Samaritans Purse to Haiti for Christmas, it is not much... but they are so deprived of even necessities, a toy and coloring book for Christmas seemed the least I could do to brighten a child's day. Sadly, most of the money people give never gets to the people in desperate need... just lines the pockets of the greedy politicos in charge.
And since you wrote this, so many other things have started to happen... What I find the most difficult to accept is the unfairness of the way help is distributed. On the bright side are good people like you in the world.
