    First I would love to commend the great job that the CNN team in Haiti is doing. This is the only way I make it through the day by receiving instant blogs on my phone, my question is how long must we wait and watch our displaced loved one suffer through this ordeal before we can bring them home to the states. It kills me to know that I am sleeping in a bed with a roof over my head while my husband must sleep on the ground in the cool then stand in line for food and water there's only so much a proud man will do now it the lack of will power to continue in the misery. I am American born but he is not all the papers were processed we were just waiting and now nothing?? We feed the hungry children of Haiti and through our ministry we prayed over the sick to give them strenght and sponsored families to go to school and Now we must start over all is lost as the locale on Delmas is damaged where do we go from here as business people in Haiti? how long do we wait to get our lives back some what normal? But all we here from the government is dead silence. With the economy I can't afford to start the petition over again and losing my husband is not an option. Can you imagine the pain when you receive a text that says "Darling when are you going to come for me or get me out of this misery"all I can do is hold my tears for the fear they will never stop. Again thank you for all you effort and a fine job done by the team of AC360 and Ivan Watson your true emotion have touched the world.

    I found this headline in my local newspaper this morning: Only 1 cent of each dollar going to aid Haiti. If that's true it's truly distrubing. Why is this kind of treatment of Haiti and it's people being done? Or being accepted? I don't get it.

    I have to say that I have really enjoyed Ivan's work through out this earthquake coverage. I hope that in the future once he, Cooper and the gang leave Haiti that CNN will move him to CNN/USA so we can see more of him.

    We would love to help rectify part of the problem of the city being "pitch black" – we're trying to transport approximately 90 solar outdoor lighting systems that have been donated and are currently in a warehouse in FL. Although 15 solar lighting systems have already been installed at the airport, Hotel Montana, University Hospital, and a UN aid camp near the airport, there are more locations where they are needed such as orphanages, clinics, hospitals, food distribution locations, etc.

    If anyone has a solution on how to move approximately 24,000 lbs of freight from FL to Port au Prince in the near future, please contact me..
