Earthquakes yesterday shook Americans around the entire country — in the East, Midwest and West — and united us as awed spectators of Mother Nature. “I hope everyone’s okay” trumped all other afternoon priorities. Pittsburghers even called to check on family and friends in Baltimore, which says a lot for humanity only weeks away from the Steeler’s season opener against the Ravens.
We felt the earthquake on Penn Avenue and its uniting qualities, too. We thought of Haitians, who, even after a year and a half, are far from full recovery after the 2010 earthquake. There is an article in the Los Angeles Times today about Haiti and the long road ahead.
