Why Haiti Matters

Newsweek Cover Story: 'Why Haiti Matters' by Barack Obama

This last week’s extra special Newsweek cover story by Barack Obama was titled “Why Haiti Matters.”

When I first saw the cover I was left dumbfounded. Were there honestly people out there asking themselves, “Why does Haiti matter?”

The question seems to answer itself. Haiti is, after all, filled with fellow human beings who are suffering and dying every day because of circumstances way beyond their control.

So, who is Newsweek and Obama trying to convince?

    Even better is the headline at the top right: “Does God hate Haiti?” Inside is Lisa Miller’s exclusive interview with the Big Man himself!
