Saving Haiti, Saving Community

I agree with Dr. Rodriguez, at the end of the day we are all humans. I really believe this article helps us remember this. Personally, speaking, a student of mine has a brother and sister in Haiti (they are fine, she was able to locate them), but the her the pain and anguish in her voice and to be torn over the fact that she was in the US and they were not able to be here was devastating to her in a sense she felt guilty, as we talked it just really hurt me inside that she was going thru this and trying to be strong and go to class. I want to believe that no one wishes ill will on those in Haiti, especially the children. But like Dr. Rodriguez explains we still have some really ignorant people out there who have not realized they are human as well.
