    At least CNN knows what's important. Great job, by the way, in keeping us posted on the Haiti 10. They should be fined heavily and forever banned from the country. Unfortunately, they have taken the spotlight off the earthquake victims. Thanks for putting the light back where it belongs.

    Yourself and Dr Gupta have reached out far more to our people in Haiti than the government. They've demonstrated their complete lack of leadership.

    To Anderson and all of the folks at CNN- Thank you so much for your continued reporting in Haiti. Your heart for the people really shows and has touched myself and many others- thank you, thank you for all your hard work. May God bless and keep you all as He uses your teams to touch the rest of the world with what is going on in Haiti.

    I think it's great that you're back in Haiti. It's obvious you have a heart for the Haitians and giving us a chance to hear their stories. Your coverage has been a blessing to me especially since I can't be there. No one has covered this tragedy in such a humane way. Stay safe.

    Well, this is the amazing one and only Anderson Cooper again!
    I would wish so much for a replay of AC360 during daytime in Europe. It is only aired liveand that means at 4:00 am. I am watching it more often than not (I have not missed a single night during the last four weeks), but I doubt that there are so many others. Anderson is simply too good and too important to be watched only by a few fans and some sleepless folks.

    Anderson – you made me a CNN "junkie" during your coverage of Haitti and I have felt unattached since you and your cohorts left. You truly are amazing with how you can state the facts, share your honest perspective and still be able to share and show your emotions. I have become a new and true fan of yours. Be safe and I'll be watching nightly.

    Thank you SO much Anderson. You are a true hero. A CNN, American and personal hero. I will say it again, you and Dr. Gupta make me so proud to be an American.

    PLEASE stay safe.

    Thank you and Sanjay Gupta for going back . There is a need for your skill , power and heart to be there . I want to watch how life plays out now that the shock is over. What happens to the money given to help the people . The people who can't get bodies identified and home from the Hotel Montana. Kenyon is involved and needs to be looked into because it is unacceptable to feeling people. These people have suffered more because of it.

    Cooper and Sanjay are the heartbeats of 'compassion journalism'. Not too many of their kind around...be nice if the interest in just 'blood and guts' was a back burner and dimly lit item in the news of today...

    I agree with everything that has been said. I felt sad when you left.
    I know that we can count on you and the rest of the crew to tell it
    like it is and not put up with any nonsense. Than you for paying attention to my people. You rock!

    Anderson, I'm happy you returned to Haiti. I think you and your fans sensed that your work there was not completed. I love the Haitian people–they are beautiful in temperament, physically, and in their language. They are strong and resilient with great Faith. AC360 is lively and exciting when you do your special work from the field. When you finish this time in Haiti, I sincerely hope you travel directly to another on-location mission!

    AC – I am a conservative 'Fox Viewer' type, 62 Coastal Georgia Republican – leaning to Independent. I have loved the Haitian people, visiting and supporting missions there for many years. Your coverage and detailed analysis of this situation has no doubt 'saved' many many lives – a strong credit to you as a man, and to your network for seeing value in coverage beyond the tragedy itself. Your compassion and penchant for truth is enormously refreshing, gutsy, and in my humble opinion, trend setting! We tire of extremist views, and crave truth. Never compromise the great heart God has given you, as it is a reflection of hope in a world of media distortation the likes of which I have never seen. Clay Sikes – Hinesville/Ft Stewart, Georgia

    Thank you. There is such heart and compassion in your in your reporting. We, the viewers, know that we will get the real story and feel the spirit and faith as well as the despair of the Hatian people. This probably will sound silly, but my birthday is tomorrow – the best present I could get is for you to hug every Hatian child that you see. 🙂 Take care and stay safe.

    First of all, thank you for not forgetting about the people of Haiti and hopefully you will be able to remind many what is still going on there and even yet to come.
    You did a story several weeks ago when you were first there titled the new orphans of Haiti~have not been able to forget it. In the piece you visited a ped. hosp where there was a little boy Johnny~had a broken leg, no one had claimed him and he did not even know his last name. Is there any chance that you could please provide an update on this little boy~he sincerly touched my heart.
    Again thanks and stay safe.

    I am thrilled that you will be back in Haiti, both you and Dr. Gupta. You report as you see it, but in your reporting comes across your humanity and sense of right and wrong. You show Haiti the utmost respect, that is why Haitians love you so. Thanks for coming home and not forgetting about us.

    Anderson Cooper, Sanjay Gupta and CNN as a whole, I just want to say thank you for your quick return back to Haiti. By you being there hopefully the people around the world will not begin to forget about the people of Haiti. So many people have donated and this is great but the work has just begun. Thanks again!

    I thank God that you're back in Haiti without you we are blind and lost sight of what is really going on with our loved ones. As you said during your broadcast that Haiti will soon become a thing of the past,but not to those who's life still extends back in the Island. You said that you would never forget my people in Hati and you kept your promise, I love you
    For that being tue to your words means a lot to me. Most of the broadcast that comes from Haiti tells of horror people selling the tents at outrages prices and some places still not getting food to help those that are hungry, people walking around armed with large knifes. As always I know youi will bring the truth to the front line. Again my sincere thanks for great job and having a heart.
