Hard Times in Haiti

Three days after the earthquake and people have barely begun seeing traces of International aid. The UN finally showed up in Port-au-Prince, handing out water and purification tablets but thousands have begun looting, scavenging for any food to eat, or things to sell. Its heart-wrenching to know that people are suffering right now, as all the supercountries take their time in getting these people help.

Two photographers for the Los Angeles Times documented the aftermath through their lenses. **Warning** Some of the photos may be graphic to some.

If you haven’t done so already, and you are able to, please donate to any of the organizations who are contributing to the rescue and relief efforts in Haiti. Remember, the easiest way to donate $10 is through your cell phone by texting HAITI to 90999.

    This is truly devastating. It really puts my “tragic” life into perspective. God only knows, the struggels we all face on a daily basis, but seeing this make me feel as if all my worries and struggles mean little to nothing. Thanks B for posting such content. Out of site truly is out of mind. We should all get a healthy reminder now and again that we’re not the only ones on this planet.
