APPLETON - In her office at Lawrence University, Janet Anthony and some ofher students huddled around her computer.
The group spends their summers in Port au Prince, Haiti,teaching music at a school there. Now, they're just trying to findout what's left of it.
"The whole school complex, which is an elementary school, amusic school, concert hall, professional school, and a convent,that's all destroyed, we understand," said Anthony, a professor ofmusic at the Lawrence.
"It was hard to sleep,” said Carolyn Armstrong, a student.“It's also just so exhausting. The sense of worry just kindof feels like a sickness."
Anthony has been going to Haiti to teach music since 1996. Afterfinding out Tuesday, she and her students spent Wednesday on thephone, trying to find out any good news.
"Just hitting redial a thousand times,” said Armstrong.“I think I've called the same person a hundred times and onetime I got a dial tone. That's kind of enough to keep trying."
They, like many across the globe, are using Facebook to trackdown friends after the earthquake. A group has been created totrack news from the region. Anthony and her students hope to goback during spring break to help any way they can.
"If I can be helping build things, if I can help with literallyanything, that's what I want to do,” said Lindsay Schwartz, astudent. “If it's not teaching music, it doesn't reallymatter to me.”
Anthony and her students have heard from a few people who saythey are safe, but there are many others that have not answered.They say there is only one way to find out.
Just keep calling.
