Dear Haitian people,

Confusion. Devastation. Despair. The tragedy that has flung itself upon you is terrible. With the death toll amassing, you wonder if your family, your friends, neighbors are one of the decimated. You feel weak. Alone. Helpless. Like this pernicious cycle will never end. But. Though these words seem obtrusive in your time of grief, a better tomorrow is inherent. Life will return. Hope will return. Security will return. So. I say to you this. Become gregarious. Live every day like it's your last. Be a friend. Make a friend. Love a friend. This disaster doesn't have to be the end. Make it your beginning. Articulate these words to those enveloped in sorrow. Faith. Community. Trust.
