After the sheer amount of devastation in Haiti following the earthquakes, I am indeed holding my family a little closer. Such tragedy, and sadness. So many lives lost. May our thoughts and prayers (and also money, if possible) be with the people of Haiti, and anyone also affected. May we also remember that there are suffering people all over the world, including our own doorsteps. May we hold our family and friends a little closer and realize that our lives can change in a second, and to be thankful for the blessings that we have.
