The earthquake in Haiti: The foot pains in sympathy with the toe.

Filed in Current affairs, foreign affairs, Tragedy by on January 14, 2010 0 Comments

For all of us who consider ourselves humanists and citizens of the world, the situation in Haiti is heart breaking. An earthquake is the last thing that this country should endure. The country is already suffering with poverty. Life is not fair. For those who believe in God, the question is why?

To all of my followers on Twitter, Facebook, and Digg, please support the effort to help the people of Haiti. Their suffering is our suffering. For believers, we all are descendants of Adam and Eve. For evolutionists, we have the same monkey ancestor.

It is hard to watch the apocalyptic images of destruction. Our sympathy goes to all the people of Haiti. As the Xhosa of South Africa say, “The foot pains in sympathy with the toe.”
