Gary Shrum from Marble Hill, Missouri:
"I cannot even imagine the turmoil and grief the Haitian people are having to endure. On the other hand, I have seen and can imagine some of the grief and turmoil (many) U.S. citizens are going through right now…there are so many children and adults here at home that need food, a blanket, a roof over their head and medical attention…I truly believe charity begins at home and we should be making a stronger effort at taking care of our own and then start reaching out to others."
Kennett, Missouri viewer who asked that her name be withheld:
Dr. Edmund Landry, an orthopedic surgeon, just returned home from spending a week assisting with the Haitian Relief Effort. Dr. Landry works at Twin Rivers Regional Medical Center. When he learned orthopedic surgeons were needed desperately he decided to follow the calling and use his skilled and God given talents to assist this effort….I have the utmost respect for the selfless way Dr. Landry stepped up to the plate and made a difference in all the lives he touched."
Janice Moss from Tamaroa, Illinois:
"I know that people in Haiti need help but so do our nursing homes here. More and more are closing their doors and people have to find places for their loved ones to go. Why can't the people send money to our nursing homes like they are to people half way around the world? We need to take care of people in our own country and then help people elsewhere."
