Donating to Haiti

This week, as we all know, Haiti experienced a devastating earthquake. Such tragedy and loss should cause us to first reflect on how fortunate we are to have such trivial things to worry about in our lives and second to remember how fragile and fleeting this life is.

I am glad to see that President Obama has moved swiftly and forcefully in sending much-needed aid to the people of Haiti.

Of course, I'm also angered to see religious dominionists using this tragedy to bolster their "utterly stupid" and insane beliefs. Not surprising, but more proof the world will be a better place when the Pat Robertson's of the world finally do "meet their master".

Anyway, I hope that when donating to any aid groups, one donates to UNICEF (as I did), the Red Cross, or Doctors Without Borders to assist the people of Haiti.

Or, even easier, txt "HAITI" to "90999" to automatically have $10 billed to your next phone bill.
