Five years ago today.
Earthquake + grinding poverty = total devastation.
In honor of a courageous and resilient people whose suffering seems as unending as it is inequitable, I share a few photos of the faces of the country, taken by my daughter and me over the years.
Who deserve better.
See my post from this date last year for more background on Haiti’s woes.
It’s a beautiful land and people, both sadly oppressed. For your reference, I took the first four and last two; Leah took the four sandwiched in the middle during a trip soon after the earthquake. There are stories behind most of them, too. I’d love to go back, but photos are all I have for now.
