I am not coping with the sad news of the earthquake's destruction in Haiti. I groan and I pray and pray for the nation. It could be our country but God in his mercies has saved us because the quake was felt even in Jamaica. I personally did not feel it. Everyday I ensure that I am abreast of the news and everyday it more grim. Mylotters, we are from different countries and we hear of the devastation so we can pray for those persons who are carry out humanitarian help and if you can contribute, please do. It does not have to be a lot. Amidst all are you coping with this news? Some people cry ,and cry and others stop watching the news. For me it is emotional I cried and pray but I believe there is hope. Please share.

Felt sorry and pray for the victims and their families, that all I can say. Simply because its the nature who causes the destruction over Haiti and no one can stop it. The inevitable happen, who would think that it will be struck with such strong earthquake now? No one can predict the future about when or where mother nature will unleash its fury. But some of it can be prevented if only man never do such harm in the environment. An example is that we can prevent floods by not polluting our rivers and oceans.

I agree with all that you have said. It is so sad to know that we are knowledgeable about issues yet we do not comply for our betterment.

Yes, that is the right thing to do. Aside from donating to try and help out for recovery, we need to pray for them such that they can survive this challenge. This is definitely a time to work together and stay strong.

AUdrey to tell the truth I have been keeping up with the news in our sister nation and it has been grima dn it has made me very sad.I felt the slight tremors of the quake at my workplace and it has made me realise that we were close but spared the destruction. The only positive spin is that more persons are now focusing on Haiti which has long since needed help .I hope that tehy will come out better than they were ,I guess it took a magnitude seven quake for persons to do something but such is life. Already I hav egiven monetary donations to the cause because I am told that money si what is needed right now.I just hope they arent any scammers who would seek to use this for their own profit . HAVE A GOOD DAY AUDREY

Persons in my prayer group in Red Hills felt it but I lived in a different area and I did not feel it. My workplace donated to the cause but we still can pray this commodity is always needed. By the way Ronnyb you have not sent me what I asked for.
