love cannot be contained
love cannot be contained within "speaking" or "listening"
love is a sea whose depths cannot be fathomed.
would you dare try and count the drops of the sea?

A Love Letter to Haiti

from debbie ford

Dear Friends,

As I sit at home writing the end of The Shadow Effect book, my heart is aching. In the devastation of these past days, I'm struck at the insanity of what goes on in the world. I know that, in my business, we say things like "This too shall pass" and "Everything happens for a reason." But on a clearly human level, on a mother-to-mother, brother-to-brother, friend-to-friend level, what has happened in Haiti is horrific. These tragedies, when viewed from a human perspective, make no sense so at a time like this, we may feel at a loss for what to do. So I wrote this prayer which I humbly offer now as a simple love letter to the people of Haiti. If you feel moved to sign it, I hope you will click on the link at the bottom to sign it and then pass it on to all of your friends and family. I will do my best to get it posted in Haiti with all of our signatures. I trust that the power of our collective intention and prayers will somehow be felt and hope it will soothe the pain of an aching human heart.

With love and blessings,

To our beloved sisters and brothers of Haiti,

Our hearts are aching for you.

To you who are suffering, without food, water, medical care, a place to sleep, or a friend to hold your hand, we pray you will be saved soon.

To you who are trapped inside the rubble with no one there to lift you out or are searching for your family and friends, to you who are sitting on the side of the street with the body of a dead relative close by, we pray you will be saved soon.

We want you to know that we care, that we wish we had the wherewithal to help you. We wish that we were closer and could rub your head or lift the concrete off your loved ones. We wish that we could wind back time and give you back life as you knew it before the devastating earthquake.

We have no doubt that you will gather together and find the strength and the courage to heal and rebuild your future but until that time, we want you to know that we are holding you and that although we have never met and can't really feel your pain or share your heartache, we are praying for you day and night, asking that our blessings become your blessings.

We wish you the faith and strength to hold on one more day. Help is coming and we are all here loving you, standing in awe of your courage.
