Haiti Earthquake

We have all been hearing about the after effects in Haiti regarding getting them the help they need. Let's put some things into perspective:

Haiti is a little smaller than Maryland (27,750 sq km vs 32,133 sq km). It has a population a little less than North Carolina (9,035,536 vs 9,222,000). The population density is greater than Massachusetts (843 per sq mile vs 828 per square mile). There is only one major airport in the entire country. Haiti is considered one of the 50 poorest nations in the world, it is the poorest in the Western Hemisphere. 80% of the population is considered to be living in poverty.

Do I have any great inspirational or mind blowing point I am trying to make here? Just this:
