10 Brainless Yankees, A Million Homeless Haitians
The insatiable media has gone to town on the story of those
hapless U.S. Christians in Haiti: Their arrest has been breathlessly
covered, the tawdry past of their leader gleefully exposed. But all the egocentric news coverage blurs one key fact, notes the Haitian prime minister: The suffering of many, many Haitians goes on. You can still donate to the above groups. Despite our short attention spans, the need remains.
"I believe it's a distraction for the
Haitian people because they are talking more now about 10 people than
they are about one million people suffering in the streets." - Prime Minister Jean-Max Bellerive
