28 Days of Love: Day 19

This afternoon at work there was a special guest that spoke at our cafeteria, Wyclef Jean.

I know very little about his music. Apparently he is quite famous in the music world.

He was very personable, funny, and inspirational during his appearance.

A couple of things stood out for me:

Wyclef was on the ground in Haiti, twelve hours after the earthquake. He was pulling people from the rubble, most had perished. 400,000 people dead.

The money that the United States sent over to the people in Haiti provided hope that they mattered.

He did pull one survivor out of the rubble of a car.

"We continue to lose people. We have to decide what we are standing for and if what we stand for matters and if it makes a difference".

Tonight the sister of Sue's first mentee(Juli) with Colorado Youth at Risk is running a fever of 106 degrees. She has been on life support for over 10 days.

I don't know if Justine is going to make it. I would ask that anyone that is reading this to please pray for Justine's healing and also pray for Juli and her family to find peace at this time.

Light and Love x 21 for Justine...
