The way it usually works when there’s a tremendous disaster is that it’s in the headlines for a week or two and then forgotten. Until an anniversary of the event or something.
So I’d like to ask Christians of good will to continue to remember the people of Haiti. Reports today indicate that 150,000 have been recovered, dead, from the rubble.
The truckers filling Haiti’s mass graves with bodies reported ever higher numbers: More than 150,000 quake victims have been buried by the government, an official said Sunday. That doesn’t count those still under the debris, carried off by relatives or killed in the outlying quake zone.
This tragedy will continue to be felt for years to come. Especially by the family members and friends who will no longer enjoy the presence of their loved ones. They need prayer as much as, or more, than they need a dollar. Because they need God’s help more than they need anything else.
