    @Megan,
    I hope that the rest of the Team from Georgia don't leave...I hope that the Country will stay and compete in Vancouver. They were still thinking about it.

    Anderson,
    It breaks my heart to see kids suffering. How can we help sponsor Monley and Kimberly to help them through this difficult time financially?

    I had a friend return from Hati and told me there is an NGO (members are from all over the world and all are volunteers providing vegan meals on a daily basis for over 4,000 people. They are feeding patients at clinics , their families and outside staff. They are providing other forms of support through supplies, dental and medical personel and even money . Its good to hear the world can work together....

    The people will have to grieve for all their losses – difficult under the best of circumstances.

    Monley is just too cute, thanks for the update on him. I hope his uncle is able to find the means to take care of him. I wish much happiness and growth to all the Haitian people. I believe their strength will carry them through this!

    At this very moment, what can we all do to help? Send money? Volunteer to go help clear rubble? Recruit bulldozer companies? Is there an organized effort to get folks who want to help the info they need to be useful to Haiti? Thanks and God bless

    Can we sponsor Monley's family through SOS or Unicef ?

    The guy was emaciated so it seems logical.

    I went to Haiti 2 weeks after the earthquake. We set up a medical clinic in Carrefour just outside of Port au Prince. There was a large tent city on the top of the hill and they are desparate for food and care there. Thank you for going back and for your wonderful coverage of Haiti. It is nice to see a reporter with a heart and a desire to not let the people from Haiti be forgotten.

    Is there anyway that we can help Kimberly. Anyway we can send money or anything to help her and her family.

    @Emily- Dido, I must agree! its a very tragic death for Nodar on the day of the Winter Olympics. He will be in my prayers.

    Hi Anderson and everyone. The living conditions of these people are so awful. No plans ahead for housing for them?

  25. David, Indiana

    Doesn't the state dept help Americans in a foreign countries find legal representation?

    Sanjay's report shows the need for continuing medical care for Kimberly and all of those recovering from injuries. What counseling and attention will there be for her?

    @mike armstrong yes and I wonder what the plans are for shelter everyone who has lost their homes.

    Anderson who is planning for shelter?

    I never heard that about Monley's Aunt.

    Thanks for the update on Monley. 🙂
    It sounds like he is physically doing much better.

    Vivian – Montreal & Emily,
    Yes, That is so sad indeed!!! They are investating right now what happened or how happened? my heart goes to Georgia of people. That is so awful I have see!!! 🙁

    If the story about the 10 ameican's attorney is true, this sounds like a conspiracy to traffic those 33 children. The evidence against these people is mounting. These people should not be released on bail under no circumstances until everything is cleared up.

  33. Sharon Hastings

    Little Monley is so cute. Thank you again Anderson and Sanjay for your continued focus on Haiti. Their needs will be acute for a long time and we can't forget.

    @ Isabel,

    It's an interesting track...the one that Kumaritashvili lost his life on...
    It's the fastest one in the world, of the luge tracks!

    No way would those steel poles not be padded in any of a large number of American sporting events, much less in high speed sporting events. This fatal accident should never had occurred. No pads on steel posts on the high speed end of the track, that is a huge oversight.

    Very sad that in order to bring in aid in some parts of Haiti that they have to pay bribes.

    The Jorge guy looks indeed very similar like the one on the Interpool pic's. But if this is really the same guy he's not be very bright... I mean it's pretty obvious that if he appears on camera now all the time with the missionaries, that sooner or later someone would find out he's the guy that is searched by Interpool...

    We play frisbee golf at our local park. It's set up with "holes" which are baskets on poles placed a hundred feet apart. Kind of like horseshoes but with frisbees.

    I just want to say thank you for the outstanding news coverage that you continue to give us of Haiti. It is so important to keep us informed of the progress and needs. I too pray that these lovely people will not be forgotten.Thank you!

    February 12, 2010 at 10:35 pm |
  42. Cessy-Chicago

    Anderson -did you ever play frisbee? ever own one?

    How could anyone taking up the luge not consider the effect of a body traveling 90 miles an hour?

    February 12, 2010 at 10:35 pm |
  44. Gloria, Brooklyn, NY

    "There are millions and millions of dollars raised to help Haiti and still it seems as though they are not getting a dime. What is going on with that? Nurses and doctors are still complaining?

  45. Nancy in Oregon

    Speed kills though- you can't 'control' it all the time...at least the young man never had time to register what happened.

    Just wanted to say please keep up the excellent reporting from Haiti, even when everyone else stops. It's almost too much to bear.
    Thanks for the hard work. We are out here watching.

    Anderson,how lucky the Haitians are to still have you there,telling their stories.You are right.To a lot of people, this is old news.I wonder if we all had the chance to walk in your shoes,if it would remain as important as it has to you.How could it not? I am constantly touched by the joy I see in their faces. A joy that comes from deep inside.Especially the children's smiles.I see a sense of hope in these people that gives me strength.In a way ,they are fortunate to place value in the real ,lasting and meaningful.People they love,faith in God,health and strength of character.I'm glad that you cry sometimes,they deserve our tears,and often those who have suffered great loss also find it easiest to cry.I'm crying for them, along with you.
