SOCIAL ANGST is more than just a blog, it is an invitation to aid in the building of wealth through the shared task of information distribution and discussion. It is a call to engage – engage in society, engage with your peers, engage in your political system, engage in spreading the wealth that is information, and engage in multiplying that wealth through discussion – so that collectively we may become more socially aware, more socially responsible, more socially vocal and ultimately more socially valuable.

Hope For Haiti:
Obama Pledges $100 Million in Aid

President Obama has pledged $100 million in initial aid to the devastated country of Haiti.  The Grio (via the Associated Press) is reporting that the U.S. government has begun its "largest relief effort in recent years" with the donation of urgently needed supplies such as water and medicine.  The President also acknowledged that the aid efforts will potentially be delayed due to the infrastructure damage Haiti suffered.  He ended his announcement with a statement of worldwide solidarity, telling the Haitian community that America, and the world, "stands with you".
