Haiti Is On Our Minds

Like millions of others, we've been watching the developments in Haiti very closely and have been struck with the magnitude of the tragedy and the monumental job ahead -- in the coming hours, days, weeks, months and years.

It has been especially difficult for one of our Nashville attorneys, Chris Cotton, who helped build and open an orphanage in Jacmel, Haiti, in 2005-06, as part of the Hands and Feet Project. He has been communicating with friends in the area and the HAF website is posting updates from Jacmel; the stories are amazing, disheartening, tragic... the full range of emotions. Jacmel is completely cutoff from Port au Prince and other areas that could potentially provide supplies; the situation is truly dire.

We plan to post a Q&A with Chris on Monday, but in the meantime we'd like to pass along a link from CNN story on the HAF Project's orphanage. If you're in the Middle Tennessee area, Chris says to watch Ch. 4 (WSMV) at 6:30pm for a story they're doing on HAF and Haiti. In the meantime, we'll keep the people of Haiti and their families and friends in our thoughts and prayers.
