Parallels Between the Earthquake of Haiti – 2010 and Terremoto and Tsunami of Japan – 2011! Prof. Dr. Odalberto Casonatto Sundays This week we are visualizing televising, estonteantes images of the catastrophe of Japan. Passed only one year of the tragedy of Haiti, those images printed ahead of our eyes, that had entered 200,000 a thousand deaths more than still are present in our minds. It seems that of tragedy after tragedy we go being insensitive to these events. They mark the moment, but last some days the media in them presents other facts and goes forgetting. Remembering the tragedy of Haiti, that is more close to us, in the Caribbean, them they are Latin American and exists a Brazilian military contingent there, we suffer with the death of 20 military and of the Dr.
on Arns the Pastoral of the child, seems that it is Haitian tragedy more than says in them close. We think thus for the differences that exist between one and another one. Between Haiti and Japan the contrasts are clamorous: Passed already one year the people of Haiti not yet it was risen, many houses public institutions are there as the earthquake left. In Haiti, a people exists who this in search of a regimen politician who can bring better conditions of life for that empobrecida population. Therefore the social convulsion needing intervention contingents of Peace. The health situation already was precarious, is enough to say that the Dr. Arns, of the Pastoral of the health, victim of the earthquake was in the country to help the organization of the Pastoral of the child whom it searchs to save the innocent children victims of the hunger and illnesses. The epidemic of clera aggravated the situation still more that earthquake decimated hundreds of people after. In Haiti, the situation is showing that the population waits very of the external aid to be able to reerguer the country that already was dived in the misery and the death.
