Good morning,

After watching the disturbing news accounts of the devastation in Haiti, my 11 year old son sat down on the night of January 13th and wrote this inspirational poem before going to bed. We hope it can be shared with your readers as an inspirational message of hope.

Hope for Haiti”
Dedicated to the Families and Survivors of the Haitian Earthquake

Earthquake, earthquake – we WILL survive!!
Our people are strong, we will not die.
We look to God and do not cry -- although its hard to not ask Why?
Our roads are crumbled, our people broken,
Our spirits, our hope, you have not stolen.
For we will rebuild -
and remake the lives you take -- Earthquake, earthquake, our pride you cannot shake!
Our beautiful land, turned to dust -
Rise up, rise up – we must, we must!!
