Natural Disaster

I’m sure you haven’t heard from me in a while. At RCS, we are approaching exams. Hopefully we all survive! (I’m sure we will. Next semester we might not.) I’m sure all of you have heard of the earthquake in Haiti. It has been interesting for me to see how the world responds. Many efforts are being made to help the victims of the magnitude 7 earthquake that hit Haiti approximately a week ago. The UN has sent troops and people to start the unimaginable clean-up processes and searching for trapped victims. There are plans to anchor a hospital ship with 1,000 beds since the sea port was destroyed during the earthquake. Canadian troops have moved in, and the donations keep coming. Some big stars have donated 100’s of thousands of dollars. The Right Honorable Michaëlle Jean delivered a speech to the country and she ended in tears as she has family in Haiti. Please remember these people and keep them in your prayers, as well as the efforts being made.
