My post just got deleted!
But I will do it all over again. :) With a smile.
So in every natural disaster, there is a silver lining that I want everyone to focus on.
It is the bringing together of all people from different creeds, races, political beliefs, etc to help another part of the world from the pure goodwill of our hearts. There is no other reason people are doing what they are doing. If we were a violent, selfish race of people -- Haiti would be left to fend for itself. It's fledgling infrastructure would collapse. It would not be tweeted, Facebook statused, sent in text messages, plastered on the news, and ultimately there would be no UNICEF operating in over 150 countries to help countries like Haiti in earthquake disasters like this.
Today it was announced that 10,000 tarpaulins, 4,600 water containers, 5.5 million water-purification tablets, 556,000 oral rehydration sachets and other supplies were air-lifted and received in Haiti for immediate dispersal to families for relief.
I am so proud to represent an organization that does this. I am so proud to live in a world where a concept like UNICEF - organizations premised on GIVING exist. :) Givers Gain.
