So hard to know what to write about the Haiti earthquake--my full refrigerator, flowing water faucets, and comfy bed reproach me; so many people there have nothing--and worse, have lost children, parents, neighbors, friends. I can't imagine the suffering--and then to stand in line for water or food, police shooting in the air to scare looters. What to do? I donated to a Catholic relief agency; millions have text-donated on their cell phones.

I remember working with people from Haiti years ago. "I don't know why they always talk about Haiti being so poor--it's nice," M told me.
