To those who would shame America for helping Haiti, consider what President Barack Obama said in his State of the Union address on Jan. 27, 2010: “As we have for over 60 years, America takes these actions because our destiny is connected to those beyond our shores. But we also do it because it is right.” Let’s do what’s right, and support our fellow human beings in their time of need.
