Things are getting desperate


Whenever I turn on the TV or radio, the news is right in my face: there's obvious danger, desperate people are crying for help, trapped in wreckage that has collapsed after decades of corruption and shoddy work; outsiders are trying to rescue them, appealing for money, but it may be too late to save Martha Coakley.



I'm sorry-- in view of the ongoing tragedy unfolding in Haiti, this is not funny, it is offensive.

This is a digusting thing to write. This is not funny. I'm sure you would not have written this had you been to Haiti in the past few days.

Nice catch...

Does that make me unable to comment on something I find disgusting? Your "humorous" anecdote really troubled me and I'm surprised that you've left it up. It's your blog, though, so I can't tell you what to do. I'm just surprised, that's all. It has nothing to do with Medjugorje, so I'm not sure how your reply has any relevance. God bless.

Thank you for your kind reply. Perhaps my use of the word "disgusting" was a bit strong, and for that I apologize. It's just that the people in Haiti are going through unimaginable sufferings right now -- none of us can fathom what they are experiencing. I have close friends who do missionary work there and I also promote and support a charity based in Haiti, so the disaster has been a little bit more personal for me. I guess making light of the situation just touched a nerve, but I appreciate your reply. Pax ~Sean
