  1. Take the eggs to Nassau, get them chilled and have a restaurants cook the eggs for the people who came from Abaco and grand Bahamas. Don't let them stay in the sun and go bad.

  2. God bless all those who send and are still sending help. Give and it shall be given unto you, press down, shaken together, and running over. God sees the heart. Many blessing to you all.

  3. It blows my mind how no Americans comprehend what he said. He was talking about Haitians, NOT Bahamians πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

  4. NBC – get off disrespecting our President (and US). International news tells the true story – not the communistic news.

  5. i dont care whether nbc, cnn, fox. each are sending reporters and techs to cover this, are they sending any aid or supplies each time they deliver staff to areas that are hard hit? Reporters seek the human side without returning any empathy or something they can use right now.
