    Remebrance for a Father and RCMP Officer lost in Haiti....

    For those that don't know or remember me, I am an instructor on the CH149 Cormorant Search and Rescue helicopter for the Canadian Armed Forces.

    Last week we sent home one of our students home, as his father was missing in Haiti.

    His father was a senior member of the RCMP involved in training the Haitian National Police force as the country attempted to bring itself up out of the decay that has plagued it for so long. A noble attempt by a contingent of approx 100 RCMP officers fro a country less fortunate than our own.

    Sadly, it was announced on the news the other day that his father did not survive the collapse of the Hotel where he was staying.

    While I am not a religious man, my sympathies go out to this young man and his family as they attempt to make sense of the tragedy.

    I ask that you take a moment to think or pray about those who lost their lives in Haiti. Both those that live there, and those that were working to improve the lives of others.

    For myself, I offer the family the Motto that I live by, that their son was training for and that his father approved of:

    That Others May Live.
    For once you have tasted flight you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skywards, for there you have been and there you will long to return.

    I am sorry to hear of your loss. The is definitely a tough time for Haiti and those who are trying to help the country. I have two baltimore doctor friends who are there right now trying to help. I have been translating their txt/sms and mms into a blog we made on friday. There stories are very similar to what you see on the news. http://www.carolandtominhaiti.com/
