And with the Haiti quake, we are once again reminded of this.

It is cosmically unfair that this small and impoverished nation is once again hit by unimaginable tragedy.  There is no good that can come from such suffering and no amount of money and aid will erase the memories and the injuries of those who survived.

But money and aid will help the people of Haiti cope and begin to rebuild. If  you can, please give to a worthy organization such as the Red Cross.

Going forward I dearly hope that the international community – especially the hemisphere’s wealthier nations such as Canada, the U.S. and Brazil – now take the reins and make a long-term commitment to rebuilding the nation and help the Haitians to solve some of their own internal problems.

Sad. So, so very sad.
