I tried not to write about Haiti this week, but doing anything else seemed profane. I have seen that our response to Haiti is intense and obvious, perhaps more so than the Tsunami in 2004. It has been suggested by some, that this may be because Haiti is at our door step. Generally, the message is one of us Americans, a great philanthropic country, leading the humanitarian effort - and we are, as we always have.
Four year olds like to make play houses from just about anything, If it looks like a “hut” or “hideout”, even better. My son is no exception. Last night we conducted our nightly routine of building a house on the bed constructed of pillows. The procedure then involved (as usual) camping-out in the “hut”, for story time.
