I’ve followed the news on this story regarding the 7.0 magnitude earthquake in Haiti. There is massive loss of life to a devastating degree. My thoughts and prayers go out to the Haitians and to all the aid workers who are doing their best in tragic and difficult circumstances.
I ask all my readers to take a this opportunity to send donations to aid organizations. The American Red Cross is one and Doctors without Borders is another good org. You can also use Charity Navigator to find and evaluate other charitable organizations more along the lines of your personal beliefs or affiliations.
If there are any martial artist or dojos in Haiti that need help, this would be a great opportunity to show support to the martial arts community.
