Sanjay Gupta of CNN treats injured baby in Haiti

It's a fascinating video. Sanjay Gupta treats a 15 days old little girl with a head injury. The care with which he does it is very moving. It is that kind of spirit in people which is indeed inspiring.

Millions of people around the world have shown empathy towards Haitians after last Wednesday's earthquake which especially had catastrophic effects for Port-Au-Prince. Tens of thousands of people have perished and millions are rendered homeless. The response of the U.S. and Canada is commendable and it is something which re-establishes one's faith in humanity. There will always be a few beasts and predators who will take advantage of such human misery but thankfully they are few. The real dangerous kinds are those who have a lot of influence such as Rush Limbaugh and Pat Robertson. Now that they have revealed their beastly side so openly, people should see them now for who they really are and they must be treated as pariahs and be marginalized.

  1. Thanks for posting this, it is tenderly touching (an understatement) and, one can't help but wonder what that precious little baby girl's future will hold.

    OTHER - not 100% sure but phishing alert may be in order

  2. Sassy, thank you for your comment; Sanjay Gupta comes across as a very compassionate human being. He would have made a great Surgeon General, too bad he removed his name from consideration.

    It is indeed a very moving story, the little girl was with her father so maybe there is a future for her... although the conditions in Haiti are extremely distressful.

    I don't know what the future holds for the people of Haiti. Hopefully other nations will help rebuild it.

    Also, thank you for the warning about the phishing; I removed that comment.
