    I travelled to Haiti to do a news report when they elected their 1st President in the late 80's...one of the biggest differences from travelling there in the late 70's was there was no longer the barbed wire fencing that spanned the entire beach around Port Au Prince, keeping Haitians from leaving!

    I am saddened they are now trapped by this week's earthquake as they are some of the kindest people I have ever met, inspite of their poverty and suffering when things are considered "normal".

    Am hoping aid arrives more quickly, especially to rescue those trapped by rubble; the clock is ticking and they don't have much time left.

    Stay Safe Anderson!

    Please start dropping food on Haiti urgently, the people are starving.

    Some man in charge?.... on the news keeps saying that is not a good idea. It is a very good idea. Where is this man coming from?

    After World War 2 they dropped food on us, and it helpt us so much. It is the quickest way to help the people.

    Please let common sense prevail.

    What is badly needed in Haiti NOW are experienced, registered professional civil engineers. They can design or restore sewage & water systems, design or restore streets/highways. They know how to dispose of wrecked structures and prepare the way for building new ones.

    The hing point for such engineers could be the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE).

    I suggest anyone with email and address book email to all a "suggestion" to contribute what they can. I did and have had 3 contribute already.
    God's blessings and healing on those who are suffering.

    Why are helicopters not being used to drop food and water strategically to groups of people?

    There needs to be an airdrop of food and water–If a fight breaks that is life. That is why it is better to donate to small charities and not the large ones like the Red Cross–who stay on the outskirts until they have the perfect amount of security– We need organizations who will go in and help the people no matter what– The longer people wait for food and water the more security problems their will be– Hasn't anyone learned anything from Katrina?
