Hi there,
I've recently stumbled upon your blogs. I live a little north of "Lower Dot" in Fields Corner.

The stories and articles coming out of Haiti are heart-wrenching. I had been thinking of taking a missionary trip to Haiti prior to the earthquake. Now, it's probably a certainty.

Keep up the good work.

Thanks. We actually consider Fields Corner part of the "Lower Dot" blog (it focuses on Dot Ave. from Lower Mills to Fields Corner) and of course this blog is meant to cover activism in the entire neighborhood.

We are hopeful that Haiti will overcome and rebuild from this disaster and after the media and the rescue workers are gone, the world will not forget the people there.
