HOPE & JOY ARE STILL ALIVE

Posted by ididnotknowwhattosay on January 24, 2010

 A friend of mine sent me a link yesterday to a special on CNN about Haiti that demonstrated that Hope and Joy are still alive in the midst of such devastation and loss. The segment on CNN was titled a Mile-Wide Smile.  If you have not had the opportunity to view this segment, I encourage you to Click Here.  You cannot help but have hope and joy in your heart when you see the smile on this boys face (Kiki) as he is rescued from the rubble in Haiti. This little boy’s smile shows the energy of the human spirit shinning through.

We would like to send our love and compassion out to the people of Haiti as they recover from the loss and devastation to their country. Although your burdens are heavy and your loss is great, know that people everywhere are sending you love and we hope that each new day will lighten the heaviness you feel in your hearts today.

If you are interested in donating to a charity, we encourage you to follow the tips on Charity Navigator, to find a charity that you can trust.

With Love,
Lori
