Images of devastation in Haiti dominated news media, in 2010!

Check out my previous blog posts here:

     

  1. Haiti- a race against time !

This amazing report comes to us from the Boston Globe. We can only guess and imagine the horror felt by Haitians, during and after the devastating earthquake, there.

They say that a picture is worth a thousand words. I agree. Take a look at these shocking photos, for yourself. I warn you that some pics are very difficult to view.

   3. Mobile Emergency Preparedness

My other relevant blog post is this one, about the critical importance of mobile emergency preparedness. This is becoming more important every day. Whether it be during a winter snow storm or an every-day auto accident, social media  can be a life-saver ( literally)!

   This , truly, is an excellent use of social media and blogs to help us, on our human path. God bless the people of Haiti, in this, their greatest time of need! Thanks, also, to everyone involved in raising funds, on the  2 Friday night telethons, and to those who were so generous(especially in recessionary times)! Money can be replaced. Human lives cannot.
