I know that just shutting up about this already is what would be more comfortable for most of us, myself included.

One precious woman told me that I need to "Let God be God".  I asked what that means. I found out it means, when you see something troubling, corrupt, unjust, or ugly, you simply pray and then look away. Don't DO anything after that. And for the love of God, don't talk about it!

Because I have come to deeply love Haitian families, and because I believe there is a tendency to trample on first mothers (all over the world) at times, I don't plan to shut up.
