Today was another bad day in Haiti. I sometimes wonder about the fairness in life. The struggling country was hit by an aftershock measuring 6.1 on the Richter scale. 6.1 would be considered a major earthquake by any standards, yet after the disaster of last week this aftershock pales in comparison. Fortunately it doesn't appear to have derailed the efforts of the aid agencies. The world will know more in a few short hours.
I would prefer to focus on something positive today. A young lady was recued from the rubble today. She had been buried under the rubble of a shopping centre for seven days without access to food or water. The team from SECOURISTES-SANS-FRONTIERES (Rescuers without Borders) worked diligently for over twelve hours to free her. 25 year old Hoteline Losana immediately phoned her brother to tell him that she was alright.
I know that it probably doesn't sound like a huge deal when faced with the fact that well over 100,000 people have lost their lives in this tragedy, however, it is still a miracle that someone could emerge from that alive after surviving seven days without water. Perhaps it's just one small miracle.
