"Three men can keep a secret, if two of them are dead." -Benjamin Franklin


Let brotherly love continue, says the Bible.
I do not question it,
For it seems that when it was written,
That was right.
But now our wars will kill
Those whose lives collide with the crossfire.
And still people stand
Do not crumple under the madness or chaos.
If those in Haiti
Are still standing
From Mother Natures wrath,
Then surely I can, too.
I will not give up hope,
And I will live.
I will live to help.

i saw the newspaper articles about Haiti, and how they are struggling to survive. i recently had a hardship in my life, and realized that if they could live through disaster, then so could i.
