    People should still help the Haiti people. They should be kind and just help out others in need of help.

    Great gratitude to the absolutely amazing people who are helping in Haiti-all of them.
    I have a suggestion for the first responders and hope that when more disaster strikes a more coordinated response will take place because once again we have an opportunity to learn from history.
    If parachutes were employed to deliver body bags full of supplies as an immediate first response, they could be made to act as tents.
    Stakes and associated poles would be in the bag with directions for constructing these tents.
    From what I have seen so far many many Haitians are using their sheets as tents -not a very sturdy option especially if it rains hard.
    I believe that if there are planes ready to go already stocked with thousands of body bags which are stocked with tents, cooking and medical supplies, water and food bars and those water bottles that make dirty water drinkable they can be parachuted to any locations very quickly. Bodies can be contained and identified. What is happening there now is horrible.
    This is needed FIRST-all other logistics can follow.
    Wrist bands can be added to the bag to help identify anyone lost and separated.
    Also maybe a way to compensate cruise ships and other large vessels to drop off their passengers and take on the effort to help supply food and water in these types of emergencies.
    The military would be a great way to deliver small self contained desalination units anywhere quickly.
    Again, bless all who are giving and caring.

    I was working in that same clinic where that doc was at!!! The clinic actually was moved in one of the following days just down the road to some tennis courts where tents and an operating room was set up.
