Requiem for Haiti

For this week’s “YouTube clip for a peaceful weekend,” I want to remember the lives that were lost in the Haiti earthquake.

The Red Cross is estimating the death toll at 45,000 to 50,000 people. I have been struggling with that number. How do you get your brain around the deaths of tens of thousands of human beings not very far from the coast of Florida?

In memoriam, below are selections from Gabriel Fauré’s "Requiem."
