I was never more appalled nor ashamed of the comments made by the leader of the amoral majority, Pat Robertson regarding the disaster that has befallen Haiti.
Yes, you read that right, amoral.
However, today my President put Mr. Robertson in his place and did so far better than I ever could with these words of wisdom that he shared today, the entirety of his speech can be found here…
“To the people of Haiti, we say clearly, and with conviction, you will not be forsaken; you will not be forgotten. In this, your hour of greatest need, America stands with you. The world stands with you. We know that you are a strong and resilient people. You have endured a history of slavery and struggle, of natural disaster and recovery. And through it all, your spirit has been unbroken and your faith has been unwavering. So today, you must know that help is arriving — much, much more help is on the way.”
Bravo, Mr. President, well said!
I would like to invite all of you, Gentle Readers, to stand united with the Citizens of Haiti. If you’d like to make a contribution to assist in the recovery, I would encourage you to do so with Medecins Sans Frontieres – Doctors Without Borders, you can do so via this link.
(k) love your post, Kat!
**applause** Mr. President.
Thanks, Kat, for sharing. That speech makes me surge with pride every time I read/hear it!
Brava, Kat. Another fabulous post.
And yesterday, I gave what I could to MSF. They are my charity of choice for most situations.
Well said, Kat. I am proud of the president’s speech also. But then, again, if you listen to Rush, the president is doing entirely for political gain. Asshat!
Thanks for MSF link too!
Dan, Rush can say it all he wants. And his small minded listeners will all nod their “bobble-heads” in agreement. They are ignorant and want to do nothing for anyone but themselves.
However, the rest of the intelligent world will stand together to help the people of Haiti.
I’ve been really shaken by the cruel words from so many people. I see it every where – on forums, social media. People have no problem saying the most heartless things. Unbelievable.
Excellent post! Thank you so much for sharing the link Kat and bravo President Obama!
Very well done Kat. Kudos to President O’Bama also.
