Haiti and our hearts

If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion. ~Dalai Lama
Open your heart - open it wide; someone is standing outside. ~Quoted in Believe: A Christmas Treasury by Mary Engelbreit
By now, most have heard about the devastation and suffering in Haiti due to the recent earthquake. This ENORMOUS calamity comes to the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere and one of the poorest in the world. It is our neighbor.
Anyone in a position to help, GO FOR IT! Bob Hope once said "If you haven't any charity in your heart, you have the worst kind of heart trouble." We are doing so much for our hearts health and well being here/sparking. Here's one more challenge! The lists for how to contribute are many- just go through the links of your local paper to choose what works for you if you are so moved and are fortunate to have any discretionary income. Please keep in your prayers all those suffering in Haiti, and their loved ones who are worried sick elsewhere in the world. While I hesitate to bring world issues to this sort of forum, I wanted to make the plug to all my communities, including this wonderful one.
