Haiti - Disaster Earthquake

I can't write about anything else tonight.

This is simply awful.  
Port-au-Prince, the capital of Haiti, lies in ruins.  Maybe as many as 100.000 are dead. While dead, missing and badly hurt people are trapped under debris or lying on the streets, desperate parents are looking for their children, babies find themselves alone with their dead parents, everything has stopped.  There is no electricity, no infrastructure, nothing works.  
Norway is sending help, and so is the US and I guess lots of other countries.  
I just hope they act now, immediately, and don't spend precious time debating around meeting tables.

I urge all of you to donate money!  In Norway you can click here for easy online donation to Kirkens Nødhjelp,
In the US: Click here to visit the American Red Cross Web site to find out more or donate online.
Those who wish to donate by phone can dial (800) Redcross or (800) 257-7575.
Those who wish to donate by mail can do so by contacting their local Red Cross chapter or by mailing a donation to the following address:
American Red Cross
P.O. Box 37243
Washington D.C. 20013

After that, we cant do much else than pray for these people, this beautiful, sunny country who once again has to go through a disaster.   

See photographs and a Video clip  from CNN.
