Microburst..Please don't forget...

As many of you may or may not have heard Port Au Prince was hit by what's called a "microburst" yesterday. I will write more later but for now our Dr. Jen Halverson's account will give you an idea of another hurdle that the people of Haiti will have to overcome.

Please don't forget...

A while ago I wrote about a little boy at the Real Hope For Haiti Rescue center who was dying because of a lack of something that most of us consume too much of each Although there are still many children dying all over the world because of malnutrition I am happy to show you all the link of 3 children (including the little boy) who are alive because of the work of people like those at the Real Hope For Haiti...

like the little boy I saw at the rescue center we have to try and hold on to that little bit of sunshine in hard times...
