From my cousin K. Neil Van Dine, he works for Haiti Outreach. Got back to Pignon at midnight last night. Port au Prince is a mess. Thousands of buildings down and thousands more unusable. The entire population is living in the streets right now. Bodies lining the streets, be picked up with bucket loaders and hauled with dump trucks. No phone service,no nothing. Just thousands of people streaming out of the city any way they can. We are posting periodic updates on the Haiti Outreach website. http://www.haitioutreach.org

My great-nephew, Russell Reichley, and his wife, Amy, have been working as missionaries in Haiti. They have an infant and a three year old adoptive son. They have been trying to get a visa for him and were told that they were "one signature away" from getting that visa. Then the earthquake struck. The can't bring the toddler out of Haita without the visa and they refuse to leave him behind. Can you use your influence to help expedite matters?
Sincerely, Peggy kelly

Haiti remains in my prayers.
The air traffic and port communications are being handled effectively by the United States Military.
Give credit where credit is due.

The media allows Venezuela and France to call this relief effort an occupation.
They should be spoken to.

Like the Progressive Strategy, the emergency disaster response will transition into humanitarian relief, to nation building, to social security.
Does this sound familiar.?

Look up "psychological projection", and stop accusing others of your own dark feelings. You are only describing yourself.
