Haiti Panel Discussion

Thanks for posting the links for the event. Matt turning up ensured they got a full house.

I think Matt's heart is certainly in the right place, the world could certainly use a lot more compassion right now, but the situation in Haiti won't change because governments are struggling to keep their own economies from sinking.

I try not to be a pessimist but I can't see things changing any time soon.

If it's not too flippant a comment, thanks very much for those lovely pics, he has the greatest smile in the world! Marcia

Re: Haiti Panel Discussion

The discussion is quite fascinating, if you have time to watch the video (and depending on the speed of your computer, it could be a very long watch). Lucy may be in the front row, and Marc Joubert of OneXOne was definitely there, as was mother Nancy and her husband Doug Kline.

Speakers Paul Farmer and Brian Concannon are amazingly educated, eloquent and persuasive. Very impressive guys. Matt sits next to Paul Farmer, and is on screen (at the edge) for a significant amount of time - and often smiling/laughing at Paul's comments.
