Haiti Earthquake

I woke up this morning in Kuwait City to the  following  front page photo shown below.  This photo really shows what they are up against. Basically, they are going to be forced to bulldoze away their prior life and rebuild a new one. Many of the dead will never be identified, just buried in mass graves with the rest of the rubble. Being outside the USA, newspapers tend to publish photos that would never be seen in a US newspaper. When you see this type of photo you really understand how much the people of  Haiti need help from everyone throughout the world.

Why post such a horrific photo as this you might ask? A day after the earthquake occurred, a photographer stood in the road staring at the dead bodies alongside the roadway. A Haitian man walked up to him and asked if he was going to take a photo of dead bodies. The photographer replied saying no no, this is just to horrible, too sad for people to see. The man then told the photographer, please, please sir take this photo and showed the world what is happening here in Haiti.

The people of Haiti are faced with the largest earthquake in Haiti in over 200 years. Their government is non-existent, and their lives have been destroyed. They have lost everything, families, shelter and food…..
