On Friday’s broadcast, we look at multiple aspects of the Haitian earthquake’s aftermath.

The images from Haiti are difficult to watch, but especially so far Haitians living abroad who are left to wonder about the fate of relatives and friends back home.

And, while most of the attention is focused on getting help into Port-au-Prince and the area around it, there is another part of the equation. Some of the injured are making their way across Hispaniola to the Dominican Republic.

We invite you to give us your reflections on the tragedy unfolding in Haiti.
