The images are heartbreaking. The need almost unbearable. The overwhelming sense of loss make you want to close your eyes, change the channel, or walk away...
And then - you hear a story of a child pulled from the rubble after 8 days or a grandmother found singing - their HOPE is astounding, inspiring and humbling.
Our eyes well up and that lump in your throat invokes a need to connect, to give, to DO something.
For now, we can pray. We can give - even if it's just a dollar today. And we can remember - choosing not to shut out the pain but to embrace it with the children and people of Haiti together.
"kenbe fem, Haiti" (hold/stand firm Haiti) - We are with you.
