    Dear Dr. Gupta,

    I saw your report regarding living conditions and the tents not proper for the rainy season that's coming. Those people deserve better for sure, one Idea is for CNN to start a campaign and ask viewers for donated PVC pipes and fittings (Elbows, T's etc..) and plastic to cover the frames. Anybody can build a large structure enough for at least two families with PVC pipes. They are also safe in case the ground shakes again! I'm very proud of you! I'm again optimist about our species. Thank you for everything you have done!

    Best regards,
    Dalmo Accorsini

    Dr. Gupta, Anderson and all the reporters coming from haiti, You cannot come back from haiti witness what is going on and get back to work or re-immerse in a first world society without transition. It is not healthy and may not work. You will feel that the problems of the US for example are kind of fake, vain. and you will feel like you need again to go back....
    One advice, upon coming back, take your family for a vacation to a quiet place, re-integrate slowly. take some time off. You need this transition and it'll most likely work.
