As the world mourns for the victims of the earthquake tragedy in Haiti, I am keeping a close eye on this story.

"…the Becky DeWine School, an eight-campus school they helped found in Cite Soleil – an institution that provides free education and meals to thousands of children in one of the most poverty-stricken regions of Earth.
The school is named for the DeWines’ late daughter, who was killed in a 1993 auto accident.
“I just don’t know what happened to the school at this point,” DeWine said in a phone interview Wednesday morning. “I don’t know if the kids had gone home when this happened; and we don’t know if the buildings were destroyed. It is a horrible situation.”
Schools like this one will need to be rebuilt – while books, technology, and resources will be needed for school and libraries. Regarding the relief efforts, let’s be vigilant now, and, after the news about the tragedy comes to a close.
