There were so many beautiful, smiling children! Those smiles need to be restored as soon as possible! I thought it was a smart move on his part to enlist the former presidents as well. He needed their help with all the other things that need his attention. I have been doing quite well with the migraines. I think I am just so happy to have time with my sons that nothing could stop me! We have spent so much time in quality conversation and I am amazed at how they view the world, filled with hope. It is especially nice since I hadn't seen my soldier son since 2007! Thank you for checking on me, it means a great deal. Shelly

I find it wonderful that they can unite over an issue like this. I do find myself wishing though that the parties could unite over issues here in our country.

Elinjo
A touching video, which demonstrates that even in a failed state there can be smiles, and moments of happiness and hope...

Re: adnohr
How awful for all of you, who are involved. I can well understand that you need to take time out from this one.

Re: Pat-B :Looks to me like he's building up some street creds
 Blogit has given me the chance to  be a 'fly on the wall' - the U.S. wall that is. On this side of the Atlantic most people still think that President Obama is doing a brilliant job and deserves that Nobel  Prize. Judging from many of the blogs I've read here, it seems to me that people at home see him in a different light.

I hope the whole world continues to remember and support Haiti. The images nearly tear me apart; I can't imagine what it must be like to be buried alive.

Yes, it's statesmanship to rise above these mundane divisions

Such suffering--they need all the help possible from all over the world.

I will take time to review this wonderful video - and the song already touched my heart.  But as Ad has mentioned; I need to simply take some time to gather my heart's brokenness over this.  I cannot imagine and it is simply affecting my life with grief.  I am blessed yet, to see so many former Presidents and this President working together.  This is catastrophic and needs more than most attention.  There are people still inside that rubble; I can't imagine those waiting to know, to hear.  Thank you Elinjo ~ Elyse

I have seen so much of it already, I really need to take one day and not look at those disturbing scenes, Elinjo. We are still waiting on news about two young girls - they are taking refuge in a theatre building located in a small town in Haiti. We received one phone call on the second day, they are both hurt and bleeding, were crying and asking for aid that had not yet come...no contact since. It's terrible, both for them, and their family here in Canada.

Amazing contrast between the levels of real help in this disaster
and the one that struck New Orleans a few years back. Sometimes a community organizer is just what you need to pull things together and accomplish something. Looks to me like he's building up some street creds under that Nobel Prize.
