Amid the chaos and devastation in Haiti there are little miracles and moments of celebration. Six days after the earthquake a baby girl is pulled from the rubble. The seventh day two women are rescued. Then, even after the Haitian government declares the search and rescue operations are over, yesterday, on the eleventh day, two young men are found alive. The brother of one said he “is disappointed at the government’s decision to disband rescue operations, as more people are likely to be trapped alive.”
I cannot grasp that horror.
May God’s merciful presence bring comfort to those who remain trapped under the debris and will die while waiting in vain for rescue.
