Saturday AM updates

Update from Carol @ 6am: Awake and waiting to get to the border. Reading "Pathology of Power" by Paul Farmer. This earthquake is the epicenter of social inequities. Chaos is the end result of consistent social injustice. We are all people - flesh and blood, and they are like us, with a soul, who cannot even count on the earth under their feet for support. We need to rethink the definition of civilization. The gift of mankind is recognizing the genius of our weakness.

Update as of 9 am: Made contact with Nadia!!! I heard her voice but she could not hear me.

Other notes: The team has bought 5 Dominican Republic phones to lower communications costs and to stay in touch. The team is taking a 5 hour bus ride to the border.
