Hatians really make us realized how messed up our American society is. These are truely amazing people who have alot to teach us. I can not understand why the US is so very bad in a crisis. If we can't be helpful why do we takeover a crisis, let the Isralies be in charge, they are great! I'm so embarrassed at being an America. What is wrong with us that we are once again all talk and no action, we donate but it never shows up to help!
Each day that passes brings stories of the airport at capacity, flights coming in from around the world, bringing food and medical supplies. Why then, does it seem that every clinic finds itself lacking even the basic supplies? Why are people still hungry? I know that the logistics of delivering the aid must be huge, but five, six days passing in order to develop "a plan" seems unconscionable. People are dying. Who is in charge?
Anderson, we keep hearing about all the aid and military personal arriving in Haiti....so, in the name of heaven, why can't anyone figure out how to get it to those poor people. It's so infurating to me, I can understand there frustration.
I think that some of the money being donated should be offered as an incentive to go over and work in Haiti as a long term goal. This would prompt more people to help. Since most in the US are suffering from the effects of our own economic earthquake.
