I few days ago I read a tweet made by Misha Collins (actor from my favorite tv show Supernatural) saying "I'm going to Haiti this summer. Anyone want to come with me? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-GL_1plEmvE&feature=youtu.be " Followed by ".@mattcohen4real is coming to Haiti too. He's the brains of the operation, I'm the brawn. No. That's not right. He's the brains & the brawn."
At this point, I have to be honest, that my first reaction to this was, "OMG!! I could meet Misha Collins and Matt Cohen!!” which would be absolutly fantastic! (Imho) I mean, come one, it's an obvious first thought right? And after watching the video and reading more about the event I became enthralled with the idea of helping this cause, but not in the superficial way of just having the opportunity to meet two very amazing people.
This event defiantly hit me on a personal level at this point that I did not expect. To better explain this: My twin sister died nearly 5 years ago and to this day I have not forgotten the pain and sorrow that this had cause my family and our friends, as well as myself. This made it really click in my head that so many people had died or been injured severely in the quake, and those how had survived were left in ruins, homes destroyed and loved ones lost. I began to feel that loss again but for all of those in Haiti that had suffered this disaster and are still suffering. Seeing the devastation that was caused by the quake just broke my heart.
So now, I don’t care if I get to go to Haiti or meet Misha and Matt.
I just want to be able to say that I helped make a difference.
Or better yet, WE helped make a difference.
