    I watched the video three times. I just could not let go the fact that this child was alive at one moment... and then gone. So sad. I hope this child found some comfort that she was not alone before her passing.

    I know the search team did all they could - they are professionals, and it was their decision to move on. And it was probably the correct decision. The feeling of helplessness, though, is staggering. To realize that a child is dying right in front of you and you can do nothing is something you cannot put into words.

    Putting it into perspective, and realizing this is just one of so many heartbreaking situations, should make everyone just stop and be thankful for everything we have that we often take for granted.

    Dear Anderson,

    Your efforts are to be commended! Please reach out to all of our Wall Street Executives that just received bonuses again this year that amount to 18% more than last year. How nice would it be if they reached into their pockets to donate to the Haiti relief effort. I just heard on CNN that over $7,000,000 has been raised which seems like nothing compared to the bonuses they receive.

    Yes, who is in charge? What are the plans? What about the children? What about the mental help to help many cope? Who is organizing to put people to work clearing the areas and building temp shelters and such? How are you AC coping with all this (again)? In prayer for all.

    I would like to take the time out and thank you AC 360 for all that you have done for my people in Haiti. With out you we would be soooo lost on this disaster. I am praying for you so you can come back safe. AC for the time being can you be "IN CHARGE" of Haiti because i have NO idea who is in charge now! Thank you for your report last night..Keep doing a good job...By the way you are very cute.......

    I have the highest respect for you as both a journalist & a human being. Your quick unselfish reaction to help that injured boy was remarkable. You are a true hero.

    When all you have left is hope, it is difficult to let that go.

    Anderson Cooper please let the world know who is in charge of the disaster relief program in Haiti. This person needs to step down. We don't have time to keep assessing and planning. That's not how you handle a chaotic, desperate situation. what people desperately need is medical care and food. Those people need immediate action, not planning and assessing.

    dear sir,

    It is a pathetic situation in Haiti we all agree but I am sad to see all of you struggling to get aid to the needy. You can land on the Moon but yet you are unable to help humanity when it is needed. haiti is an Island and yet you do not know how to bring help. It has an ocean and it has ports and one can evacuate in a hurrry. You do not ned airports only=Use the water ways . can you people not use your head for once and get an few aircraft carriers and ships to get a team of doctors medicine food etc. seems you people are helpless. God save our souls.

    Anderson,
    Thank you for the warmth and compassion that you show in all of your broadcasts. After viewing last night's report on why the plane with "Doctors Without Borders" couldn't land while victims are dying needlessly, we felt your frustration and share in it with you.

    We enjoy your work and follow your program as much as we can. Again, we are keeping all of you in our prayers. Keep up the excellent work!

    anderson. first let me say what all of you are doing is wonderful.but there are enough people that would take 1;2,3 kids from haiti and take care of them till this country is back up. why wont the goverment get these babies out ? who cares about red tape. it's the lives of these kids that matters. be safe. barbara

    Mr. Cooper, I am grateful for all the hard work that you are doing over in Haiti. It takes a special person to do what you are doing. I would like to thank you and CNN. Keep up the good work. I hope that God
    smiles on you in all your endeavors.
