I experienced living very close to the epicenter of a 7.2 earthquake (Loma Prieta in '89). It is still a scary and dark memory. Last night I went to sleep with images of Haiti etched across my mind. Needless to say, I didn't sleep well. However, when I awoke today in my sturdy home with my safe and healthy family, I allowed the business of our "usual" to prevent me from letting my thoughts wander back to Haiti's newest tragedy. As soon as I found a moment to be still... my grief (and then my gratitude for all that I have) flooded in. This is a time to reach out. I immediately decided to visit Amanda, who had organized Cap to Cap for Haitian newborns last year. I knew I could count on her for eloquence and words of wisdom. I wasn't wrong. If you haven't already, go give her a visit today. Her readers have filled the comment section of today's post with very good additional resources for how to give.
