Documentary Galleries: Haiti Earthquake
Devastation after the January 12, 2010 earthquake.
A lot has been said about the resiliency and the tenacity of the Haitian people, and that is what really struck me to the core. Their infectious smiles and graciousness despite the unimaginable hardships they’ve endured, is truly humbling. These are a people who have had a lot of practice: surviving hurricanes, floods, an economy where seventy-eight percent of the population earns less than two dollars a day, and now a devastating earthquake that has literally rocked the nation. This country, with half its population brimming with children, has been brought to its knees, and these people of unwavering faith have taken advantage of the position to fall to the ground in prayer.
