MLK Holiday

Today is a work holiday for me, and I welcome the day off. But as I lay here in bed this morning watching the news, I feel so helpless. I know it's not my fault that I am unable to help the Haitians. I have no way of being there to hug or caress a frightened child. I remember how frightened my little girl was during the Northridge Earthquake 16 years ago today. I've sent money to the Red Cross and to Doctors Without Borders, but that seems so easy, almost like a cop-out. I know what Haiti needs today is money. I know that...for food, medical supplies and equipment, etc., but I still feel so helpless. Ugh. :(
