Unfortunately Haiti must stand alone in its emergencies because so much money had been donated to Haiti and the money is no where to be found nor was it giving to those who really needed it. Also, the US is having its own emergency to deal with. My heart goes out to those individuals that is affected with the flood.

As God is my witness, I think that we are living in the last days. I see around me people's heart is growing cold each and everyday second of the day. May God continue to blessed Haiti.
