I hope you had a chance to see OSU’s Lucien Antoine’s reaction to the earthquake devastation in his native Haiti. If not, it’s available here on Oklahoma Sports.
Antoine’s mother and relatives in his hometown of Cap Hatien have been accounted for. An uncle and at least 6 cousins living in the Haitian capital of Port-au-Prince had not as of Thursday.
Antoine says he has tried to avoid watching the video on television because it is painful for him, but finds himself doing so in order to find out what’s happening.
It has to be a helpless feeling to be so far away and unable to help those you love the most. Antoine is doing what he can by donating money, clothing and prayers. He encourages others to do so as well.
