Human Condition in Haiti

Please be warned this video is very graphic.

How tragic to see so many bodies being buried amidst the rubble of devastation.  Even worse, fathoming the idea of thousands of deceased men, women and children never even being identified, let alone properly buried, by their next of kin.  The main priorities are obviously saving those still breathing, but one can’t help trying to imagine the pain of those who will never know where their loved ones are laid to rest.

The burning of corpses obviously seems too horrible to be true, but the reality is that left out to further decay these bodies will only worsen the already dire conditions of ailing survivors.  The condition of the human race in Haiti reminds us that we are always at the mercy of nature.
