I can’t even imagine. After Hurricane Ike, at least we knew the storm was gone. To still have such powerful aftershocks more than two weeks after the initial quake is unimaginable as far as mental health goes.
I haven’t heard any talk about violence or fear of it in the news reports for the last two days. There were conflicting reports about the Haitian government calling of rescue searches — disputed early on and then repeated by FOX News all day Saturday.
That doesn’t surprise me since Fox News Channel was one of the very few cable networks that didn’t broadcast the Hope for Haiti Now telethon.
My hope is that Fox News will finally get it right, that the local affiliates will finally get it right.
Haiti will need help for a long time. I’ve decided to think of it as a bill that I pay every month.
And because it had already started before the earthquake, reforms and rejuvenation will continue. That’s my hope.
There is always hope.
