    Betty I would like to say Iam the biggest fan of CNN, as much as I like everyone in the newsroom during the week, Wolf Blitzer in the Situation Room, Lou Dobbs, Campbell Brown, Larry King, & Anderson Cooper, I truly am the biggest fan of you and TJ on the weekends. Betty you are a phenomenal journalist and you bring the news to us viewers like nobody else can. Im so happy for you to get this award, you truly deserve this award for not just what you do at CNN but also what you do for people outside of CNN, Congratulations Betty you are well deserving of this award.

    Congratulations, Betty! I have followed along with your organization during the reports you've given on CNN and on the Help the Hunger website and I donate to your organization.

    This is such important work and I hope the wells can be built sooner rather than later. I pass along the information about your organization to my friends and other acquaintances because I believe so deeply in the work you are doing.

    Thank you for all of your hard work!

    I happened to catch the last story about Ms. Nguyen's humanitarian cause Help the Hungry on CNN and was truly touched. What she did and does makes a difference and is to be commended. But I have to admit there is one thing that has been bothering me...in the CNN story I saw earlier this summer, it appeared to me Ms. Nguyen is wearing diamond stud earrings as her foundation provides a helping hand to those Vietnamese families in the video. Please tell me I am mistaken.
