This Haiti story is getting out of hand to the point where no one has a clue what was or wasn't said.
Two senators sitting at the same table, about the same distance away from the President can't agree on whether he said what he purportedly said. And, you all wonder why gridlock in the most popular word in the political dictionary.
This weekend was a sad anniversary.
Britney Gengel was 19 years old when she died trying to help those effected by the Haitian Earthquake eight years ago. She was from the Worcester area and she was there on a humanitarian mission.
She was one of 300 thousand people who died as a result of that tragedy.
Her mother Cherylann and her husband, Brit's dad created the "Be Like Brit" Foundation.
It is a foundation, based in Central Mass that has so far built an orphanage in Grand Goave, Haiti.
The mission is pretty simple. To help those who have the spirit to live but not the means to live the way you and I do.
A group of Holy Cross students left this weekend to go there to help, just like Brit did eight years ago.
And with all the talk about what was said, who said it, what they mean't by what they may or may not have said, one thing is for certain.
"They love us so much and everyone is so happy. They love what they have and they work so hard to get nowhere, yet they are all so appreciative."
Britney said that.
Wouldn't it be nice if we could get away from the meaning of the words and how it was said and pay more attention to solving the problem?
Isn't that what Brit would have wanted?
