My prayers and thoughts are with the people of Haiti. Your lives may not be considered worth a Facebook filter or the time to develop a code to let your loved ones know you are safe. Your lives may not be on the “most read” because the loss of your lives does not cause the pain that’s associated with the loss of human lives.
But for those of us who do care, we send our genuine prayers. Our love. Our tears.
And it does take a second thought to remember that we should care. It is not washed all over our media and talked about at work and will not be discussed for weeks on end.
But we have taken that second to remind ourselves of humanity and the loss of humanity.
