Ike Ravages Haiti

As much as I complain about the weather in our lovely state (especially around February of each year) I have to stop and give thanks that we very rarely are forced to deal with deadly threats of nature. As most of you know by the non-stop news, many other parts of our country and the world aren't so lucky.

Hurricane Ike has been ripping through Haiti. Although it has now been downgraded to a category 2, it left plenty of death and destruction in its wake. I have several friends waiting for their little ones yet in Haiti. I can't imagine how difficult it must be to watch such terror on the news and not be able to hold your children and let them know it will be okay. Or the terror of not knowing for yourself if it will be okay...
