For the western hemisphere this is the most devastating catastrophe of human life  in modern times. Today the Port-au-Prince airport is beginning to open up to more air assets and search and rescue teams. Already the Fairfax search and rescue are pulling live victims of the earthquake aftermath.

President Obama has instructed our State department and military to concentrate getting as much relief to Haiti to save as many lives that can be saved and help survivors with water, food, first aid, and shelter.

I believe in the coming days we will see many dramatic rescues as teams with specialized dogs get into the rubble around Port-au- Prince. Also many other countries such as Great Britain, France, China, Iceland, and Brazil are deploying teams of rescuers and supplies.

Many Faith based organizations are sending supplies and spiritual help the 8,000,000+ roman catholics and christians of Haiti. News yesterday that the Catholic Arch-Bishop of Haiti was killed during the earthquake and his body has been recovered. The Haiti national cathedral has been destroyed. Hopefully religious services and ceremonies for the dead can be honored by an influx of religious leaders and missionaries that get into Haiti this week.
