Today is the anniversary of the Haiti quake. What do you think of, when you think about such disasters? I remember seeing the little babies who survived the quake, their little faces, their expressions, shouting out their need to be cared for. I suppose when you are a mother these images tear your heart, but I would think they touch everyone, no matter what their role, and lifestyle. These are the times when the world is one, at least in my eyes. So, today we remember that disaster and it’s a good time to reflect.
