Two months ago I wrote about my friend Kelly, a nurse with Doctors Without Borders. At that time, she was preparing to travel to Haiti to aid in the relief efforts after the big quake. Not to sound like a reporter, but we met for dinner the other night because aside from wanting to do our annual (okay, it was more like our let’s get together every 5 years) dinner, I wanted to hear all about her experience in Haiti.
It’s safe to say that everything we’ve heard is true. They need food and water. They are now living in tent cities. Buildings are now nothing more than rubble. But there was one thing she said that resonated with me… the Haitians, in the midst of such utter chaos and devastation, still have hope.
And this child’s face shows how strong these Haitians are. Because even when they have nothing…
They can still muster a smile….
Now this guy….
well, we all know why he’s smiling….
Thank you to Kelly and all of the other brave souls who have given of themselves to help in the recovery and rebuildling of an amazing country.
