Suffice to say, the 2010 earthquake in Haiti was insult to injury. Life just gets tougher and tougher. Fortunately, Haiti’s story has not just fallen to the wayside. Conditions there continue to get “front page” coverage 10 months after the tragedy.

    I followed your blog link from Huffington Post. This article about Haiti is the issue that Womens Future Benefit [our nonprofit] worked on for the orphans this summer. You did an excellent job telling about this, but it seems that there is apathy on the issues of Haiti. It is so sad to see people give up a good fight for such an important issue.

      Thank you so much for your comment. You are the first person to comment on my personal blog!

      I agree that there is a sense of apathy regarding Haiti, at the same time I regularly hear about a lot of good working being done there and on Haiti’s behalf. Just last night at a cocktail party someone told me about their not for profit which will be taking pharmacy students to Haiti in March in order to do volunteer work.
