    Sorry bout that,

    1. Isn't it a pity what happened in Haiti when the earthquakes hit, house fell down on people, crushing them by the thousands.
    2. But how are they re-building?
    3. The same way, they haven't changed there building practices-es, its shit, not sound, structurally un-safe.
    4. It will hold up to wind and rain, but earthquakes will knock em over easy.
    5. When they get hit again, we will see all what happened, happen, all over again.
    6. Its sad really.


    Regards,

    Sorry bout that,






    1. Well I was watching *Anthony Bourdain No Reservations* and I saw the locals building some structures, and it was obvious to me it was crap.
    2. Shawn Penn was in this episode, trying to help, which I give him credit for that, but in a land of voodoo and witchcraft, there isn't much help that will stick.:(

    Yea, an' `sides dat lil' Haitian kids have to spend all day beggin' just to get some food...
    :eek:
    Haitian street children beg, have little hope to get off the streets
    Aug. 27, 2012 - Children with no parents or single parents spend their time on the streets begging for money to support themselves and their families. Neither the government nor nongovernmental organizations have the funds to do much to help.

    1. Thats sad Granny, but when these kids grow up, and find away into one of the houses being built now, how is them being poor now going to matter much when the house they dwell in falls on their heads as they did on their parents heads of late?

    You oughta visit Haiti for real. You might be surprised to find that it's not like you think it is. Bad, yes. Could it be better? Of course. But the Haitian people are just wonderful.

    All too often some Americans are smug in their approach to poverty when the impoverished don't look like them.
    Racist remarks, innuendo and callousness are part of the natural fare when some white people feel the need to "explore" and share their preconceived notions concerning the reasons for Black or Brown poverty.

    But what about the forgotten whites who wallow in poverty. What about the white children of Appalachia? Before we point the finger at Haitians, Africans or Mexicans shouldn't we address the poverty right here in America?
    The face of poverty in America is not Black, BTW.There are about 25 million poor white people; a number that is well more than half the entire US Black population.

    Behold the truth:[​IMG] Here are some hungry children we have forgotten about!

    [​IMG] Are you getting the picture?[​IMG]What have you done about helping these poor kids?
