What does the Haiti earthquake mean to and for Baltimoreans?

    Eraka—thank you for your insightful perspective. Many people are questioning God or grappling with whether or not they have the right to do so. Unable to find the words or explain how I have been jarred by Haiti's horrific tragedy, I instead, have gone inside and asked: How ought this change me and the world I live in, why is this suffering deemed different from Sudan, Iraq, or anywhere else people are being terrorized by human kin or other natural forces? For whatever the reason, the Universe “keeps” pointing our attention to a tiny nation, neighbor, and the resilience of its people. So what is it that we are not seeing? My highest hope is that we will not just throw money at this, wipe our hands, and then be done. Whether we like it or not Haiti has branded us and looking away is no longer an option.
