Travolta Flies Relief Supplies to Haiti

January 26, 2010 News of the Day No Comments

AirplaneActor John Travolta and his wife Kelly Preston have flown their personal Boeing 707 to Haiti loaded with supplies and doctors for relief efforts.  On the return trip, they brought back several Haitian-Americans to be reunited with their families in Miami.  Below are two links on articles and videos that document the story.  As you will read in the first link report from the Earth Times, according to The Greater Washington Haiti Relief Committee and the Haitian Embassy in Washington D.C. reported in the article:  “The plane carried 7,000 pounds of medical supplies, all of which were purchased with funds provided by Travolta as a donation to the relief efforts.  The plane also carried much needed food and water including 4,500 meals-ready-to-eat.  Also onboard were 50 doctors, including surgeons, plastic surgeons, trauma specialists, and cardiologists.”

Now I know there will be naysayers out there that will comment that they also took Scientology Ministers as well, and these naysayers will comment that it was for recruitment or publicity (these are some comments I saw in some other websites).  Well, the way I see it, and I am not a Scientologist, but the last time I looked, the United States is still a free country, that was his plane, his money and resources, and if he wants to bring more people over there to help, I think that is just great.  And it was the Church of Scientology that coordinated all the logistics of the trip, and that took a lot of effort and manpower.  At least he is doing something to help, and it usually turns out that the naysayers are those who do not help, but only complain.

A few years back, I had the great pleasure to meet Mr. Travolta and shake his hand.  It was only for a few seconds, but he is so sincere, he has a firm handshake, looks you straight in your eyes (with his beautiful eyes) when he shakes your hand and greets you with a pleasant “Hello”, and you can only feel good thoughts about that type of special person.

I say, God speed John and Kelly, and thank you for all your humanitarian deeds.

Alligators In Our Yard!

July 17, 2012

  You have to look real close, but the gator is resting behind the sago palm and the water’s edge.  Needless to say, I too these photos from inside the house and did not go out to get a closer inspection. The Alligator Trapper caught “the big one” which was 12 foot plus.  Here he […]

Shepherd in a Manger

November 20, 2011

  Found on the Internet / Facebook: A Nativity Scene was erected in a church yard. During the night, someone came across this. An abandoned dog was looking for a comfortable, protected place to sleep. He chose baby Jesus as his comfort. No one had the heart to send him away so he was there […]

Tale of the Missing Socks

September 17, 2011

My cat Penelope wears socks.  Yes, you heard correctly, socks.  She’s a little over 15 years old now and has arthritis in her back legs.  This causes her to be a little unsteady when using the litter box.  Sometimes, not always, but sometimes after she tinkles she looses her balance and steps in the clump of […]

Pets and the Joy They Bring

September 16, 2011

Having a pet, be it a cat, dog, bird, fish, horse, pig, or whatever furry creature you relate to, is a positive and healthy experience.  Studies have proven that they can extend our lives, lower our blood pressure, and pretty much make us feel good all over because they give us unconditional love. You may […]
