Congratulations to Amy Wilentz for telling the story in a manner unlike the major "news disseminators." Bravo!
I have had the privilege of briefly volunteering in Haiti, and I have never experienced the profound strength, resolve and faith as I have witnessed in Haiti last week. All of us may take a lesson from the people of Haiti, and in particular the children. Missing limbs, facing more surgeries, they still smiled, happy for the outpouring of love and humanity given them from relief workers around the globe. There is absolutely no room, no tolerance for inaccurate, racially motivated, bigoted preconceptions nor the stupid assignment of blame for this devastating natural disaster.
Thank you, Amy Wilentz, for your insightful and respectful commentary.
