Children from Haitian Orphanage Arrive In Pittsburgh

This morning about 9:30 am I finally felt the pain of the Haitian people in their struggle to navigate the aftermath of this natural disaster.
I watched as 53 children arrived at the Pittsburgh aiport from a orphanage in Haiti, as I sat in my big chair  watch the barley clothed kids deplane I started to cry uncontroled,finally feeling the human connection after almost a week of watching the news of this disaster.Maybe it's time for me to do more then write blogs condemming others and just get up off of my ass and just do something for the people of Haiti!

Honestly, there is so much sadness in this world that it overwhelms me sometimes. That is what makes the arts so precious.
