I thought about Samia Salomon as I was reading about "Miryam of Nazareth."

From Genesis to Acts there is a line of women living lives of religious vitality, cultural integrity, and political involvement... whether in the roles of prophets, judges, warriors, matriarchs or lovers... in the true fashion of rebels they made war on faithlessness, hopelessness and narrow-mindedness.

So, as we spend Christmas Eve with friends and loved ones, perhaps we should think about the water in that cup of tea, or the ice used to cool the punch at family gatherings.

We have the blessings of safety nets of water and sanitation, something Haitians did not know even before the earthquake.

The answers to our questions about cholera do not reside in sensationalism. The answers can be found by fearlessly opening our eyes -- "Ayiti Kale Je."
