    Thanks, Chantay for postings this. It is going to be a long and difficult recovery.

    My prayers to all who have lost loved ones and continued prayers for those who survived.

    These people have so little to begin with, now this. Let’s just hope the outpouring of support is not just for today but continues in the weeks and months to come.

    “Doctors Without Borders, Fr. Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), international organization that provides emergency medical assistance to people suffering from a natural or societal disaster, such as an earthquake or war. MSF was founded (1971) by a group of French doctors who felt that much international aid was often medically inadequate and too easily obstructed by legal obstacles. The group now has more than 2,000 persons providing medical care in 80 countries; MSF personnel also seek to focus media attention on problems and injustices in the areas where they serve.
    The organization was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1999.”

    “Doctors Without Borders.”
    In French: “Médecins Sans Frontières.” (MSF)
    *World’s largest independent international medical relief agency.*
    It was established by a group of French physicians in 1971. It aids victims of armed conflict, epidemics, and natural and man-made disasters and helps others whose lack of health care is due to geographic remoteness or ethnic or political marginalization.

    Teams provide primary health care, perform surgery, vaccinate children, rehabilitate hospitals, operate emergency nutrition and sanitation programs, and train local medical staff. Operating independently of governments, the organization depends on VOLUNTEER HEALTH PROFESSIONALS (more than 2,000 annually) and private donations.”

    “… You walked with me… footprints in the sand and helped me understand where I’m going. You walked with me when I was all alone… with so much unknown along the way and the I heart you say… I promise you I’m ALWAYS there when your heart is filled with sorrow and dispear. I’ll carry you when you need a friend, you’ll find my footprints in the sand…”

    My thoughts are with those who’ve lost their lives, loved ones, family, homes and will no doubt be traumatized by this disaster.

    I wish Maxwell strength in this trying time, knowing he has family ties in Haiti.

    As the days roll by it’s easy to get distracted by other things in our everyday lives. Let us be diligent in our prayers and support for the people of Haiti. They need us so much right now. If you haven’t already done so, please join me and countless others by making a generous donation to the relief efforts. Maxwell has several links listed on his website http://www.musze.com if you need suggestions. Those of us who love Max and have compassion for human kind, will heed the call and do all that we can.
