    Where is our military to control mobs, so the doctors and nurses can stay and take care of their patients? And why isn't a helicopter being utilized for trauma transport?

    The look affectionate of Spanish firemen moved me a lot!

    The smile of the boy when reviewing his mother is the kind of thing that make life worth living!

    Ivan's report about the sweet 11-year old girl who died after being rescued was so sad. A stupid and unnecessary death. Maybe her death will bring more attention to the terrible state of this country and its desperately poor people.

    Hey Anderson,

    Great reporting! It sounds like everyone (aid workers, etc...) are doing the best they know how to do. Sadly, doing the best they can do isn't saving enough lives. Certainly a cold, hard reality. Be safe.

    Hey Anderson..

    I love your passion at the "stupid deaths" you speak of and the needless loss of life that surrounds you.
    I see roving reporters come upon injured people who have no medical help or aid.. I ask this... can't the roving reporters (wherever they go) bring a doctor and medicine with them?? Bring them on the plane with you..at least there will be a doctor when you guys roam out to find your story.. keep up the great work, Anderson..

    How are the people outside of the capitol being helped and searched for? There are hundreds of American citizens living in the area of Bel Vil miles from the city, have they been accounted for. One of them happens to be my mother.

    Put the food and water on strong men's backs and then surround them with military presence and get that aid to where it is needed.

    The longer the time is from when the tragedy accurred until the treatments occur, then the crowds will become more brutal as the shock of it wears off.

    Aid is coming but to the people it is not fast enough, that is why they will become a mob/violent.

    Stay safe.

    Megan... they need to medi-vac these people to that hospital, and hospitals in surrounding islands. This island is a stones throw from Cuba and Jamaica

    That little girl did not deserve to die. This is heartbreaking. I cant stopping crying right now. These innocent people deserve help, right now and fast. I hope the world is watching.

    I've been saying this since the quake started. Evacuate!!! Find ways to clear roads and head north where the people can eat and find medical help. It's so frustrating.

    Despite intense international mobilization for humanitarian aid – in the form of rescue teams, equipment, supplies and money – it isn't for the vast majority of Haitians.

    I read that the planes of various countries can not reach

    Dear Anderson,

    You have achieved a lot through your show, especially showing the different ways support is and can be brought to the people affected by the earthquake.

    America needs to fly our great flag at half staff for our friends in Haiti to show our respects for the death of our friends that we only recently have noticed .

    Among so many images so sad, the rescue the boy Redjeson Hausteen Claude, by the fireman Spanish, followed by his encounter with the mother, it was very exciting!

    Just heard on T.V. that more people are going to die tonight because of the treatments that the people didn't get it on time. That is just so heart breaking to hear on T.V. that people are going to lose their life.

    I agree all of you, that is so sad for her. she died...... very breaking heart.

    So who is making the doctors go? What is the security threat?

    Why can the reporters get through to the people in need, but the relief workers cannot? Seems like we should enlist the help of the media. What takes our armed forces so long?

    Why there is no Government moving in Haiti. Where is the President???

    Good evening everyone. So sad, especially for the little children. So heartbroken about the little girl. I am worried for the news people there. They are doing such a wonderful job but you can just tell that as each day passes it is taking a great toll on them. I hope everyone gets good emotional support when they return, maybe some critical incident stress debriefing counseling. I know I would need it. It would be a life altering experience for sure.

  24. Emily

    Lots of "stupids" deaths, and death all over the place.
    I wonder how the CNN Teams are doing this?!

    The reporting has been great, but it must be taking a toll on all of them!

    It is unexcuable that the food and water is not with the victims at this point,

    The ship is now the way to Haiti.. they are going to help these victim to treat them. Yes, They are (World involved) already arrived there now.

    I understand, they could have freed her hours ago if only they had a saw! talk about tragic!

  29. Sabrina in Los Angeles

    If the injuries are really bad then there is not a lot that can be done for them because they can't get the right care fast enough.

    Very sad.

    And yes they are stupid deaths. Deaths that we have the ability to fix but not the time or supplies.

    January 15, 2010 at 10:06 pm |
  30. Christina from Canada

    Stupid deaths. It is not eloquent but it is so correct.

    Why is the military not surrounding these hospitals to keep peace?

    January 15, 2010 at 10:06 pm |
  31. Emily

    Is the 'Help' & Aid being able to get into the different places?

    Only one landing strip, roads all destroyed, near docks, etc.

  32. Danielle - Los Angeles

    CNN hands down has the most compassionate reporters of any network. The human suffering that is going on in Haiti is unbelievable. Watching the reports sends you through a gauntlet of emotions, your excited when someone is rescued and your heart breaks when you hear stories about people that pass away.

    you and the entire CNN team are doing an excellent job. I don't know how you do what you do under these conditions but it makes the tragedy real to us here in the states.

    AC, you sounded tired and frustrated on LK. Govt's are quick to promise and usually slow to deliver. As every moment counts I will pray for those in Haiti.

    Hi. It's been a terrible week seeing what is happening in Haiti. I don't think things can improve quickly enough. Your reporting is exceptional, though, and very much appreciated.

    January 15, 2010 at 10:04 pm |
  38. Mike, formerly from Syracuse

    Given the poor little girl food and water while she probably had internal injuries may have made matters worse.

    I am an Haitian-American from Pembroke Pines, FL and I would like to take this opportunity to thank CNN and its team of reporters for their hard work on behalf of all Haitians. You will never know how much your honest reporting and countless stories have touched me. We, Haitians, are extremely resilient. Indeed, this is our cross that we have to carry and this is our 'Holocaust." This is the last thing I would expect – an earthquake.

    Again, I thank you from the bottom of my heart on behalf of all Haitians. CNN is the only channel that I have watched, is watching and will continue to watch. Keep up the good work and you are number one in my eyes.

    What is holding up the help? Where are the ships? Medical staff, supplies, food, water? I understand, almost the entire world is helping. I understand ships from China and Northern Europe will take time, how about Gitmo bay?

    That 11 year old girl died, after being freed. That is heartbreaking!

    This is SO SAD!

    Very emotional here as being told by Ivan.

    To think that just because they don't have the hospitals and Rx's meds!

    Where's the help?

    The limited infrastructure of Haiti, even more precarious after the earthquake, is the main obstacle to the aid reaches the needy.
