No Comparison of Need
I couldn’t but scale back my pitch during my call to Matt Allen, knowing that he’d subsequently be speaking with a representative of the Red Cross concerning the dire need for money to help the people of Haiti. Simply put, there’s no comparison to be found in everyday life to this sort of catastrophe:
Haitians piled bodies along the devastated streets of their capital Wednesday after a powerful earthquake flattened the president’s palace, the cathedral, hospitals, schools, the main prison and whole neighborhoods. Officials feared hundreds of thousands may have perished but there was no firm count.
Prayers and assistance the world over should turn toward that small island.
