The Haiti Earthquake

As I write this, the people of Haiti, an island nation in the Carribean, continue to suffer from the effects of an earthquake. The 7.0 magnitude tremblor all but leveled this country that is considered the poorest in the Western Hemisphere.

The tragedy also involved some Filipinos who are there as members of the United Nations Peacekeeping Mission.  Reports indicate that at least 3 of our countrymen were trapped in some of the collapsed buildings.  We still hope that they would be found alive.

To help in this time of tragedy, you can find a link to the relief effort of the American Red Cross at the sidebar of this blog.
