Haiti. A Call to Show Our Greatness

The many natural disasters of the last few years have brought so much devastation, injury and loss to our world, to our people. We coalesce and helped as a people to move the healing and restoration forward. I know in many of these places the process is still evolving and many ills still exist. We must continue to show our greatness as we are called on once again to serve our neighbors.

This is our greatness, to give and to serve. We have, as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, said "everyone has the power for greatness, not for fame but greatness, because greatness is determined by service."

We are called to show our greatness in service to our brothers and sisters in Haiti, the latest natural disaster. Let us share our greatness so that they too can rebuild and we, collectively, serve. Please be a part of the solution for Haiti. In their hour of darkness, 'let your little light shine' on them.
"There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflect it." I hope you will all take part by spreading your light and realize your greatness by serving them.
Let us guide Haiti into a new beginning. A new beginning where, justice, equity, hope, peace and greatness will live for all and with Haitians. "The world is round and the place which may seem like the end may also be the beginning" Ivy Baker Priest.
Let us help Haiti back and give them the support to be better able to serve all its people. - Its Greatness.

Visit the many established websites to offer your support and assistance. There are many organizations and groups taking contributions for the relief effort. Please take time to select a group that you trust to make your donation. We want to make sure that all contributions will get to the true relief effort in Haiti.

A google search turned up pages of such organizations. Select ones you know and trust and make a pledge.

Haiti we stand with you.
We pray for you and we look forward to a better, brighter day for all of your peoples!
For all our future!
