Haiti Crushed by Earthquake

I hate putting this so bluntly, but I think God hates Haiti (or at least has a heck of a grudge).  Mind the levity, but Haiti seems to be the Western Hemisphere’s pinata.  Mudslides, political instability, persistent horrible violence and kidnappings, (that’s just normal in certain parts of Haiti) and now a 7.0 earthquake hit yesterday destroying much across the already destitute Caribbean nation.  Do they ever get a break!

Some estimates range from tens of thousands to nearly 500,000 dead thus far.  The US, of course, is spearheading the international effort to send relief and help to the shattered nation.  Hopefully, the death toll doesn’t rise too much higher and the people in Haiti get some relief soon.
