It's so horrible to see the pictures coming from Haiti! I can not help but feel so much sorry for these individuals. Even though I have never been to Haiti nor do I know anyone with family there...I can't help but feel a huge connection to citizens. I have made a donation through the Red Cross and I feel so helpless that I can not do more. My only hope is that with the world's help, Haiti will find peace after this disaster.
With this tragedy, I want to remind people who travel overseas to please register with the US Embassy before travelling abroad. You can go to http://www.state.gov/ and register your trip. By doing this, you are providing the embassy or consulate with contact information in case of a family emergency, natural disaster, civil unrest, etc. You never realize how important this small step is until a disaster occurs overseas.
