The very second the newspaper hit my kitchen table my children caught a glimpse of the horrifying cover photo of a man's outstretched arm from underneath a pile of rubble, their day and the lives of millions, would be changed forever. Like a punch to the gut, we noticed the victims ring finger was adored with a gold band eluding to the fact that he had a wife and family. My nine-year old stood speechless for a moment and than finally uttered, "Will an earthquake like that happen where we live?" My heart grew heavy as I sat to explain what had happened to my children revealing the truth that due to the nimble structure of the homes and buildings in Haiti, unfortunately they did not "stand" a chance. I asked my children just as we ask you, what are WE going to do about it?
