Ever notice how these natural disasters seem to happen more often in areas where crime runs rampant?

Just saying.

"Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. Recent development efforts have suffered severe setbacks because of political violence, lawlessness, corruption and natural disasters. "

Even more reason to pray for those people.

They have pretty good coverage of this on Fox News and it is just heartbreaking. I know crime is high there but the thousands of children and infants that died there today are still innocent. Im really suprised by the lack of compassion. I will be praying for those people, as a nation and as human beings. I just cant imagine digging my child out of one grave to have to put her in another. Its a sad day..........

What a horrible feeling earthquakes are

Dogs arent the only animals that feel it coming.Birds will start chirping, cats will start walking around suddenly.Herds of whatever will start running...If you see a herd of cows running by get under a frame

I flew into Mexico the day after the huge Earthquake in the 90's. When I got to the condo I felt another one coming and it was one the scariest moments in my life. Turned out it was only aftershocks.

My heart goes out to these people.
