Haitian born Garcelle Beauvais-Nilon went on Larry King expressing her thoughts about the earthquake that hit in Haiti. She also says that she’s questioning her faith, especially since Garcelle is not able to get in touch with her family that still resides in Haiti.
Garcelle Beauvais-Nilon: You have to question faith, in a way, you do. I mean, you don’t understand, especially a place like Haiti. We’ve been hit so hard by lots…

“It’s really hard to take. It’s really hard to watch. I mean, seeing the one picture of the baby covered under the rubble, because they couldn’t get to it… Those are my people. Those faces are my family. The worst is not knowing.”
Moreover, like many, she’s questioned her faith in recent days:
“You have to question faith, in a way, you do. I mean, you don’t understand, especially a place like Haiti. We’ve been hit so hard by lots – why would this happen? I don’t know. This is the country that deserves this the least – not that anybody deserves it. But we are resilient and we are proud. Even if we have nothing, we are very, very proud. It’s unfortunate. It’s devastating.”
And like fellow native Wyclef Jean, she’s appealing to people to contribute to relief efforts:
“I want people to give anything they can. I know it is tough times for the United States. But give anything, Red Cross, Oxfam. Anything you can do would really be helpful.”
In trying times like this, all people have is their faith, no matter what they believe in.
