    At least the clinic in Ivan Watson's report is standing. But it does highlight the urgent need for medical care.

    And there are some moments of good news, Norwegian rescue teams arriving, the Haitian police coming out to help calm the crowd situation in the park where people were panicking. The plan for getting aid into the city that Tom foreman outlined

    Dear Anderson,
    I cannot express how touched I am at your love and dedication to those in suffering. My eyes watered down my cheeks on my walk home from the gym tonight; how is it that I can worry about such silly things as my cell phone bill, money in my bank account or the side effects of a new antibiotic. How selfish have I become? These people have held their dying babies and are forced to lay them along the street after death due to no medical refuge.
    My vanity can only go so far. I look up and respect you.
    God bless and keep you.

    I am watching the show now and have already sent donation to Red Cross as I am hoping many more US citizens will.

    What I am wondering, giving the conditions now and lack of hygiene resources for the citizens, what happens to the news reporters when they are off the air. Where do they sleep, eat, shower and what kind of condiions are they staying under while they are in Haiti.

    Keep up the great coverage and stay safe.

    I was just in Haiti last week with my family. We can not get ahold of anyone in Haiti. They reside on 79 Village Solidarite in Port au Prince and Delmas 3. We are praying hard for everyone. Any updates on these areas will be much appreciated.

    You can't let the horror get to you. You just have to keep looking for the living among the dead.
