This saddens me greatly. Haiti is already a 3rd world country with intense poverty...and now this. Last I heard a hospital collapsed, as well as part of the Haiti National Palace.

After something like this happens, it makes it hard for me to think about how we as people of wealthy countries, are able to take so much for granted. Now these people who already have nothing, are in trouble. I know this has happened before, in recent years, something tragic has happened in a country that suffers with poverty, but it's the first time I've actually sat down and thought hard about it. How can we just sit here, and complain about our problems, and not even think to be grateful for what we have, even if it may be more than some?
I don't know why I posted this. I just found it to be something worth thinking about and taking note of.
