Haitans in America awaiting word from loved ones (

MIAMI- Alourrde Pierre stood inside a Little Haiti community center, wringing her hands as she waited for news of her parents and 15 siblings in Port-au-Prince. Her children ask what happened to their grandmother, but she has no answer.

"It is so hard not knowing," said 37-year-old Pierre. "What can we do?"

It is a scene replaying countless times among the roughly 800,000 people in the U.S. of Haitian descent, desperate for any morsel of information about loved ones on the earthquake-devastated nation. Feverish calls, texts and e-mails largely go unanswered as the distraught try to muster a reason to hope as bodies pile up on Haiti's streets.

It is truly terrifying to know what these people are going through right now. Some reports confirm that there could be anywhere between 70,000 - 100,000 by conservatives estimates, but possibly a 500,000 people who've perished after this devastating 7.2 earthquake that has hit the country of Haiti. With this comes the possibility of disease spreading throughout the area from all the dead and decaying bodies that are being pulled from the rubble and placed in the streets.

I believe God is still in the business of answering prayer, and as such, we need to keep the families of the victims of this quake in our prayers, that they may be consoled in this time of great sorrow.

God bless you, and thank you for reading today!

Thanks for visiting Conservatives United!
