Survivor's message: 'Don't cry for me'

In the Newsroom, we've been working to help as many people as possible find out about their loved ones in Haiti. Here's the story of a woman who was told her cousin died in the quake, then saw her alive on CNN. The two finally got to speak Sunday. Now her cousin has a message for the world.

    I have been watching your coverage since the Earthquake hit Haiti and you have done a great job covering all aspects of the rescue, etc..
    I am amazed at all the ineptness of the rescue as far as clearing the streets, food and water distribution and how the USA is putting themselves above everyone else and ignoring the other countries and their help trying to make the US look "good" and the Haitian people are the victims of this. The American Ambassador is a a good example of how inept things are and it seems he has no clue as to what is going on and the unorganization is very obvious from your coverage. You can't tell me that we can't put dozens of bulldozers in the streets to clear the rubble to get through to distribute food. I thought Catepillar was in need of business – where are their tractors and equipment? Why isn't the government (who loves themselves so much) putting this equipment on the ground – it HAS been six days already. I hear there are Canadian crews waiting to be called to help and then I hear the American crews are tired and have been working for 29 hours straight – there is reporting from the Red Cross that the effort is completely unorganized and chaotic. Please expose the unorganization to everyone more and embarass the US. I also hear that other countries are rapidly taking the orphans and the US is not, why? This is another disgrace like Katrina – they're just trying to cover it all up better. I think the black people will always be treated like garbage – no matter what. I believe that the underlying thinking is "so what if a they die" – we'll just do the minimum.

    The students from Lynn University were supposed to be at a hotel and some where found – what about going back to the Hotel to see if there are toehrs alive? Are there any attempts at finding these people? Is there any rescuing going on at this Hotel? Have the given up?

    It is a good thing that CNN is helping to find loved ones in this disaster but I am still curious about any Muslim states helping out? I saw a jet from Qatar but has there been any help from any Islamic republics or are they glad to see a mostly Christian state going through these tough times? Are there any Muslims on the streets helping in the rescue effort?

    i would like first of all to say thank you to CNN for allowing this continuous coverage of the earthquaque in Haiti. I am Haitian and no matter what anyone say there was a lot of obstacle that impaired the entrance of AIDS to Haiti. i am reading the comment above about U.S wants to look good look at it this way we have to have some kind of oder we can t have everyone pouring in Haiti without a plan and without port of tower. I feel that none of us even those of us that are trainned will never do everything perfect Therefore, let us learn from mistake made. At this time no criticismmaybe later. A lot of people put themseves out there to help. Please all i want to say thank you and continue to help my people anyone.

    Thank you CNN. The compassion that your news casters have shown through this tragedyin Haiti, far surpasses journalism. I thank GOD for Dr. Goupta, Anderson Cooper, and Larry King, true humanitarians.
