When I saw this image, I was struck by the eyes of this precious boy. Then I saw the face of the rescuer and started to cry. Photographic proof that we are all together on the face of this planet.
I was in Haiti in 1989. I was Bill O'Reilly's producer at Inside Edition and we went there to work on a story. The poverty is unimaginable. I saw children drinking water out of potholes in the street. Human beings live in cardboard shacks. They are the poorest people in the Western Hemisphere. And yet, they were helpful, friendly and courteous to us; rich, well-fed Americans who would soon be on an airplane flying back to our comfortable lives.
Please consider donating to any rescue organization in Haiti. I am adding a couple of links to make it easier. Even $10 can make a difference. Thank you!
