In the wake of the January 12th earthquake, the island nation of Haiti was left in ruins.  The country’s capital, Port-Au- Prince, crumbled, killing more then 250,000 people while leaving 1.5 million homeless and more than 300,000 orphans…a figure that is rising every day.  While the world and media came to the aid of the Haitian people, they have long since moved on to other stories and events, following suit with the typical “attention span” of the world wide news media.
