    I am so impressed by the resilence of the Haitian people. The men are working digging out people and tenderly caring for the babies as well. What they are all going through is unimaginable. Doing all this without food, water and shelter–heartbreaking!! Please continue to show the good.

    Forgive me if I am posting in the wrong place..I am finding I am spending far too much time trying to "play by the site" rules and I am losing patience. This is a general feedback to CNN..which is doing such a fine job. I am watching pretty much from 7am through 8pm and at the moment there is one story/tape I believe should be relooped over and over; the people singing, the people walking and clapping and singing.

    This is the finest spirit of humanity..this is the rainbow of what all of us are made of. Please contnue to run the stories involving the resilience and color of the Haitian culture...feature the singing and ask about faith and spirituality in their lives. THAT is what I am tuning in for!

    Gratefully Tina R

    I wanted to know why the US is not using the four airports in Puerto Rico to unload the aid and Also the airplanes can be refueled. The people in puerto Rico, the goverment,incluging Governor Fortuno and the national Guard and thousands of doctors, surgeons, orthopedic surgeons and many EMT's are ready to help. The island of Puerto Rico is closer and many US citizen that are still in Haiti can be brougt to the island... we are just waiting and wanting and to help.
