Haiti Overwhelmed

The humanitarian crisis in Haiti is absolutely horrifying.  UN and American military are just overwhelmed by the scale of human hunger and suffering.  Have we really confirmed 100,000 dead, with the possibility of reaching 200,000?  My mind can barely comprehend the scale of this tragedy.

The frustrating thing for me, as an American, is knowing that our national media will quickly become bored and return to its regularly scheduled celebrity gossip, and the average citizen will just block it out altogether.  Out of sight, out of mind.  We cannot allow that to happen.
