I was so honored not more than a month ago to travel to Haiti and
photograph a beautiful Christening. But while I was there I was able to
see the sights and see what Haiti was all about. What I came to find
out is it’s not as fearful as people made it seem. I wasn’t scared for
my life and I felt at peace. Although it is said to be the poorest
country in the Western Hemisphere I tell you one thing, it was wealthy
with treasured culture and beautiful people.
I was relieved to know that my new found family in Haiti are ok after experiencing not only the earthquake but the many many aftershocks as well as the most recent earthquake of 6.0 just this morning and
eager to help them as they help the people there who were deeply
affected by this tragedy.
Seeing all the
tragic pictures lately on the news and the net after the devastating
earthquake has made me pull out my own memories of the Haiti I came to
know and love. I know one thing, God is awesome and I pray for all the
families and friends who were affected by this earthquake in anyway. I
do know this, Haiti WILL rise out of this tragedy.
Let’s not stop praying and helping any way we can to rebuild Haiti to even better and stronger than it was before. Please help
Haiti in their time of need. You can donate $5 by texting YELE to
