Many Hands Make the Load Light

With the horrific news
out of Haiti - most wrenchingly, angry crowds of survivors forming
roadblocks with uncollected corpses - it's hard not to succumb to a
sense of despair and helplessness. As an antidote, Salon has compiled a
slideshow of people, and a world, reaching out to each other.

This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.

Because of people like you, another world is possible. There are many battles to be won, but we will battle them together—all of us. Common Dreams is not your normal news site. We don't survive on clicks. We don't want advertising dollars. We want the world to be a better place. But we can't do it alone. It doesn't work that way. We need you. If you can help today—because every gift of every size matters—please do. Without Your Support We Simply Won't Exist.
