They say the more you have, and know, the more will be required of you.
It seems with the devastation in Haiti this week, the less you have, the more bad will befall you. Haiti has always been one of the poorest countries in the world. Homes and buildings were constructed with the least amount of fortification, many people were crammed into every space. The infrastructure that provides medical care, fire protection, law and order is not sufficient to meet the every day needs, let alone to handle the after-affects of this earthquake.
I think about all the orphanages that regularly arrange placement of babies for adoption from there to couples in other, more prosperous parts of the world-largely Americans. Now those orphanages have collapsed, killing all those holy innocents and their dedicated caregivers. May God Bless them and all who died and those who survived to face life without their loved ones, their homes, their jobs, their hope.
