As I sit today to blog, all I can think of are the beautiful people of Haiti and their unimaginable pain. It seems like devastation from a terrible movie I would never go see, but it's real and it's a very short distance away. Wow, how the pain in the children's eyes puts things into perspective in my life and I hope yours too. I want to go and kiss the tears away on every child's face. Hopefully this tragedy will bring all of us closer to one another and to what is "real" in this life - Love. Hold, hug, kiss, and tell your family and friends how amazing they are to you. Let's all take a moment (a lifetime) to be grateful, and please don't forget to make your donation to the American Red Cross. www.AmericanRedCross.com Surround the people of Haiti in your mind and hearts with peace, love, and healing. May God bless the souls of his children in Haiti.
Love to all of you,
"To speak gratitude is courteous and pleasant, to enact gratitude is generous and noble, but to live gratitude is to touch heaven."

P.S. - I love you John.
"God is in the slums, in the cardboard boxes where the poor play house. God is in the silence of a mother who has infected her child with a virus that will end both of their lives. God is in the cries heard under the rubble of war. God is in the debris of wasted opportunity and lives, and God is with us if we are with them."
- Bono (Singer of U2)
