Miracle In Haiti

I had no idea the human body was capable of this:

French rescuers pulled a teenage girl – very dehydrated, with a broken left leg and moments from death – from the rubble of a home near the destroyed St. Gerard University on Wednesday, a stunning recovery 15 days after an earthquake devastated the city.

Darlene Etienne was rushed to a French military field hospital and then a hospital ship, groaning through an oxygen mask with her eyes open in a lost stare.

Speaking of miracles, Secretary of State Clinton told the complainers of the world what they deserve to be told:

“I deeply resent those who attack our country, the generosity of our people and the leadership of our president in trying to respond to historically disastrous conditions after the earthquake,” Clinton said.

That anybody criticizes the only entity on earth that has that much “muscle” to move that many people, that much equipment and all those supplies in that short of a time frame is ridiculous.  Talk about miracles!

I think this letter to the editor says it perfectly.  Here’s a pic of that hospital ship the French rescuers took that girl docked off the coast of Haiti.
