As most of you have probably heard, there was a devastating 7.0+ earthquake in Haiti yesterday. By some accounts, like The Haitian Blogger, the worst hit areas are in the mountainous region where both rich and poor (but mostly poor) built their homes. Lack of preparation for such an event — Haiti hasn't seen an earthquake like this in 200 years — has resulted in huge losses of life, numbering in the thousands, and a great many collapsed buildings, including the presidential palace. Five workers in Haiti's U.N. mission as well as the archbishop of Port-au-Prince are all believed dead. As brethren on shaky ground we're all probably feeling especially sad and mildly freaked out at the moment.
