HOPE, HELP, HAITI!

When you have hope, you have faith.  When you have faith, you have everything.  But what happens when you lose your everything?  What happens when you lose your next door neighbor, a best friend, your entire family, the place where you once call home?  What happens when in less than 24 hours it is all gone?  This is the unfortunate nightmare that a whole nation of people are facing this very moment.  This is the nightmare of Haiti.

Other then seeing the commercials over the years about "Saving A Child".  I did not have much knowledge of this nation.  This was until I saw the after effects of the earthquake.  There are thousands and thousands of men, women, and children that are dead.  There are thousands who are missing.  In addition, those who are alive have no food, no clean water, or shelter.


You may say that you have problems of your own and bills of your own to pay.  However, I beg you to consider this..."What if it was you or a family member?"  Please save your cigarette money or that money that you were gonna spend on McDonald's or that other fast food restaurant.  One small act of kindness and faith can make a difference when hundreds of thousands of people may have lost their lives.  Yes, I said hundreds of thousands of people.
