Hopes for Haiti

While we are continuing our efforts to help those affected by the recent disaster in Japan, I would like to take a moment to share my hopes for the future of Haiti. Yesterday, Haiti held its presidential runoff. Today, counting is underway and the world awaits the final election results.

I pray that the elections conclude without violence. I pray that the newly-elected leader will begin rebuilding the hopes, lives and landscape of a country that still lay in ruin as a result of the devastating earthquake that hit January 12, 2010.
