Haiti

Posted by Scotsman on January 14, 2010 in Geek Stuff, Life |

Well I’m sure you all know about the tragedy right now in Haiti.  A 7.0 earthquake hit there on Tuesday, and there are a lot of people dead.  There are estimates of 100,000 to 500,000 which is just unreal.

I really don’t know what to say about it except it really sucks.  These are human beings, and their lives have just been taken away from them.  The people who have lived through it have most likely lost members of their family, their homes and so much more.

I’ve been on the internet for many years.  I’ve seen everything.  Goatse.  Two Girls, One Cup.  Cake Farts.  Guys getting their heads blown off.  Posts by Toptenguy on NPP.  All these horrible things – to the point where I’ve became desensitized to them.  Someone can send me a picture of – christ I don’t know – a kitten getting stomped on by high heels and I won’t bat an eyelid.

But this picture I saw today really got to me:

That is without a doubt one of the saddest and most heartbreaking things I’ve ever seen.  I honestly don’t even know if that’s from Haiti – it’s being passed around the internet like crazy right now and no-one has said it isn’t from Haiti.  Regardless of whether it’s from Haiti or not, that’s the situation they are facing in Haiti right now.

Just sit back and think about the next week in your life.  Planning to eat out at all?  Going out for drinks?  Renting video games?  Buying DVDs? Going to hit the corner store and buy some junk food?  Picking up some weed to get stoned on the weekend?  Basically – planning on spending money on things that you don’t really need?

Put it off till the week after  Because Haiti needs it right now.  The International Red Cross is the best place to donate I believe, however if you go to any charity website you like/trust I am sure they have a special link for Haiti.

There are many worthy causes out there, but right now Haiti needs everything they can get.  Every little bit helps.
