A Challenge

It's easy go get caught up in the drama and stresses that each of us inevitably face in our every day life. How easily we let petty things consume us, break us down. The reality is, in the grand scheme of things, it's not as bad as we sometimes make it out to be. It's usually not the end of the world, life goes on. But for the people of Haiti life as they knew it ceased on Tuesday morning; their homes and families shattered. It's sad that it takes a tragedy to remind us how lucky we are, to remind us what is really important in life.

I challenge everyone to do what they can to help those that are not as fortunate right now. The Red Cross is asking that people donate $10 to help in the relief effort. $10 is two venti coffees at starbucks, lunch at the deli, a movie ticket - however you want to look at it. Even the smallest amount CAN make a huge difference. Please pray for the people of Haiti because life doesn't stop and wait because your world fell apart. Let's not leave them behind.. http://www.redcross.org/
