Week of January 18th, 2010

On Tuesday January 12th, 2010, the world stopped.

We've all heard of earthquakes. We've all heard of the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake that contributed to the tsunami in Asia. We've seen pictures, footage, and the news surrounding the events that happened in Haiti. Though we may never truly understand the result of this earthquake, our hearts ache with those who must bury their loved ones while keeping the hopes that maybe, just maybe someone they know and love is still alive within the fallen structure.

As soon as the word spreads, the rest of the world came together asking the same single question, "What can we do?" and just like that, it doesn't seem like there's different faces in the world but as one human race. And within some of us, there is doubts of helping and within the event in Haiti, more political questions were asked rather than doing more helping. Why?

Join me this week in listening to Declan Galbraith and ask the question. Why?
