This Tuesday, January 12, 2010, a devastating earthquake occurred in Haiti that has led to thousands of deaths and catastrophic amounts of damage. It was centered at the capital of Haiti, Port-au-Prince, which is a reason for the incredible damage and the enormous death toll. Rescue efforts and aid are being sent to the country to help clean up the shambles caused by the earthquake in the lives of all its citizens. A natural disaster has a way of causing great pain, but also the potential human begins have to help one another. Whether it is money, food, health care, or just good thoughts, the way people unite and look past all differences to see people in need of aid is one of the more astounding capabilities people have within them. We tend to focus on the things we do against each other and some choose to define humankind that way, but it is how we help each other that should truly define us as a species. – Ruben
