Each generation has its history-changing, world-altering moment. Over the past decade, my generation has been faced with some pretty heavy moments. September 11th. Hurricane Katrina. The Tsunami. And now, Haiti. If actions define who we are as individuals, then our collective responses to these moments are what define generations. Now is the moment for us to respond and help those who have fallen rise from tragedy.
There are thousands of volunteer doctors helping in Haiti, many of them Haitians returned from the US or Dominicans from next door or people like my college roommate Anil.
Josh Sternberg has a writeup over at HuffPo about one of his Facebook friends who is sending mobile updates from his medical service in Haiti, so I thought I'd add a link to that piece in this series
