I have decided that news commentators have some sort of sick game going on trying to see who can ask the dumbest question.
Michelle says maybe they get commission for the person who asks the dumbest of the day.
I'm really tired of people on the news talking about Haitians as if they are a bunch of lawless, random, ignorant fools.
Haitians are strong. They are proud. They are patriotic. They are giving.
I've met more people who would "give you the shirt off their back" in Haiti than in America. And many of those people may only have THAT SHIRT, but they'd give it to you anyway.
Remember the LA Riots? Americans aren't so awesome during crises sometimes either. The "natural man" tends to get desperate when pushed to the edge.
I think the thought that sums up the people I have met in Haiti is people who are doing the best they can with what they have where they are.
And I think they deserve your respect, Mr. Highly Paid Reporter.
Please continue to pray. Pray for Jessica. We have no idea where she was when the earthquake hit - we just know she wasn't at the orphanage. Pray for the families, for the children, for the injured. Pray for the rescuers. Pray for the governments. We need so miracles to come out of this. I can't stop to think about what's happened to all the paperwork they'd been compiling for our adoption for the last 27 months. We need a miracle, Lord. We need a miracle.
Pray for those that are stuck in the rubble and trying to hang on. Pray for the workers and their safety. Pray they'll have the ingenuity to figure out how to make do with what they have and still save lives in less than ideal conditions.
Pray that the world doesn't forget about this next week when some celebutante does something stupid.
Pray for the children.
