I think I can finally write about Haiti. It was too hard at first. The pictures were devastating and I ached for those children with my ties to Compassion International.
A good friend commented that she still feels helpless. She has contributed to the Haiti relief and it still doesn't feel like enough. There are no easy answers. My only thoughts are pray, give, and then turn off the news. I want to guard against being desensitized, emotionally overloaded, or worse, entertained.
I hurt so much for the people of Haiti, but some of this "news" feels like exploitation of sacred, private moments.
What do you think? How do you cope with disaster in this magnitude?
