Be a Humanitarian and Help Haiti

You owe it to yourself, as a human, to read at least one story on the earthquake in Haiti. The New York Times has a great write-up here.

What follows disasters such as these is a humanitarian effort. That’s not an American effort or a Christian effort, but a humanitarian effort. Whatever motivates you to help is unquestionably good, and that’s where patriotism or spirituality may come into play. I choose to believe the good which surfaces is part of an innate sense we, as humans,  feel to help others in need.  Embracing that notion should eliminate the commentary which portrays the people of Haiti as somehow different because of their ethnicity or race.

You want to help other humans, and you can. From the New York Daily News:
