    I saw most of Andersons interview with Sean Penn I agree with Mr Penn I am a former NYPD Emergency Service man when Katrina hit LA I saw Mr Penn launching a boat MY wife then asked when I was leaving I drove 30 hrs and ended up working with the New Orleans PD as well as the Arizona State Boarder Patrol swat Team. Listening to Mr Penns description of the dispursement and sad redloyment of supplies in Haiti is a mirror of Katrina,My problem is that we are still hurting here Mr Penn I assume ur efforts are still in the USA and Id be willing to help any way I can
    Good Luck Gentleman
    We're trying Keep It up

    It is unfortunate that after time, every tragedy must be only remembered as an anniversary. We are almost at the six month mark and it is already considered old news. Though this tragedy brought Haiti aid, I fear that this short time effort will fall short of orchestrating an opportunity for long term self-reliance. I applaud Mr. Penn’s efforts and I will do my part in telling the people of Haiti’s story. As the director of a small art museum in southern New Jersey, we will be mounting an exhibition to celebrate, with our fellow Americans, the culture of Haiti.

    We have an opportunity to help rebuild Haiti. First, we have to rebuild America – recreate the manufacturing sector; time to rebuild the steel mill industry. This will put Americans back to work immediately and if we insist in rebuilding in New Orleans, let's dip that steel in rubber [use old tires] so it doesn't corrode. ...and yes, We have a responsibility to help Haiti recover and I hope the appropriate people will release the funds Sean Penn speaks of.

    I really feel for the People of Haiti and I want them to have a solid roof over their heads; food in their cupboards and all the basic rights afforded to all people. As usual, the money seems to be "tied-up". Answer: Untie it. People's lives hang in balance; Let's go! Let's make it happen! CNN – It's your duty to keep this on the front burner. Perhaps, time for Anderson to make another trip to Haiti.
