Binks Says: Let’s Do Some Good

Haiti was struck yesterday by the worst earthquake in 200 years— a massive magnitude 7.0, equivalent to the force of a 32 megaton bomb— followed by powerful aftershocks.

We can do some real good in Haiti, because (1) It’s a nominally Catholic country (not a failed Jihad-state), and (2) there are reputable & established aid work programs there (like World Vision).

  1. The Missionaries of the Poor are there (and elsewhere) tending to the poor daily. I understand our parish (St. Ignatius, Cayman) is sending the next two weeks collection. We tend to take disasters personally since Hurricane Ivan. (2004) I’m sure its the same for any community who has rebuilt after a flood, hurricane, tornado or earthquake.

    God help Haiti.
