Earthquake in Haiti: Links I Like

Rescuers use hand tools to get at trapped survivors in a collapsed building (AP via Kansas City Star)

The blogosphere just blew up with stuff about Haiti, more stuff than any one person could take in. Here are a number of links to posts and news that I found helpful and informative:

Firefighter/paramedic Happy Medic gives us a brief course in the mind boggling logistics involved in the rescue effort.

The Kansas City Star assembled a gallery of images from the quake zone. Prepare to be touched.

My good friend and former pastor John takes a spiritual look at the disaster.

Blog bud Ann T. has more good commentary and links here and here.

Tony of TKC assembles more Kansas City blogger reaction and KC newsy links here and here.

The Church of the Nazarene has updated its news service and has also created a slide show. The distruction shown in these photos is mind-blowing. (If the slide show's direct link doesn't result in pictures for you, please use the news service link, and then go to the slide show. It is worth the trip.)

Lord knows there is lots more: If you know of a good story, source, or bloggy commentary, pass it on in the comment section.

Peace out.

Dear The Observer,
Besides my modest contribution, you found everything I was looking for.

I just quit posting on my update and sent them all to you.

Your friend indeed,
Ann T.
