Helping Neighbors

I finally have a couple random minutes to share a quick post with y'all before I have my Teaching Kindergarten class.

If you haven't helped with the Haiti disaster relief but feel a tug to do so, I encourage you to give some form of help. In church on Sunday, they showed a 7 minute video filmed by Churches Helping Churches and it was... emotional. They took up a special offering and raised over $11,000 in that short amount of time. Can you believe it? I was awestruck.

I guess for me, it's hard to see people hold such a hard heart against Haiti. Yes, I am aware that even though they are 90 miles away from the US, their government doesn't like us at all. But that doesn't mean that we should treat them the same way. It was eye opening when one of my managers said that they deserved what they got. What must it say about your character if you can say something that hurtful? I don't think anybody asks for a disaster like this, especially a natural disaster.

Anyway, if you haven't helped Haiti, please help them. And even if you do not have the monetary sources, at least think of them and don't take things for granted.
