I came across this powerful message below on one of my friend’s Facebook page. It’s moving, powerful and speaks for itself. It must be passed on. Let’s remember what happened one year ago today in Haiti.

At 4:53 p.m. on January 12th, 2010, more than one-quarter of a million people lost their lives in the 7.0 magnitude earthquake that sent 33 aftershocks ranging in magnitude from 4.2 to 5.9 and left more than 3 million people in need of emergency aid. Please stop what you’re doing at 5pm on Wednesday, January 12th, 2011 to remember those who perished in last year’s devastating earthquake, and to pray for those still in desperate need of help.

Too many people have forgotten about the earthquake  in Haiti and the many lost in this tragedy. Awareness can change all of that. Invite your friends by clicking here and posting this to your profile…
