I Am Not Ignoring Haiti

image I am sure that everyone is aware by know about the terrible earthquake in Haiti.  I just want to say that my thoughts and prayers go out to all of the people who are suffering and the families that have lost loved ones.  I have not written a post about this because quite honestly, I am disgusted with the hack jobs that I have seen at various liberal blogs.  There are so many issues that intersected to create this as a disaster that posting a way for people do donate ten dollars via their cell phones really does not address what has happened here.

I have a lot to say on this issue but I am not a first to the gate kind of person.  It will take me a few days to write the post that I believe that this earthquake deserves but in the meantime I wanted to acknowledge what has happened.  Please use this space to share your thoughts and discuss ways in which real awareness can be raised.  I know that Bono type activism feels really good right now but when Haiti fades off of the front pages, these problems will still exist.
