Between Thursday October 25 and Friday October 26 2012, Hurricane Sandy came timidly over Haiti as a non threaten overcast sky with light rain drops and a bit windy to gradually grow to be a nonstop torrential rain but yet with no apparent menacing signs to caution a fragile Haitian people, the poorest and the most vulnerable. The ?Rivière Grise? with its rolling rumble suddenly was the first to strike taking everything on its way and overflowing in some parts in Marin, Plaine to further strike thousands of homes. For already two years and ten months, following the January 12, 2010 earthquake, many Haitians are still living in tents, makeshifts homes of tarp, plastic or anything they could find that can give them a sense of shelter. Their resilience and their desire to live despites life?s misfortune cannot be compared to yours or mine if we never experienced even for a moment what it is and what has become for them a forced adaptable lifestyle. I invite you to visit with me thru these pictures which are just a few samples of how a freed human race for over two hundred years is living. I want you to look at these children faces, I want you to try to read the mind of a worried teen nursing mother, and do the same trying to enter the skin of a sick loving father and above all, I want you to think of theirs ?haves? and their ?what they should have?? the bare minimum maybe: acceptable shelter, drinking water, food, shoes oh well, I could go on and on. However one cannot stop noticed that they still find the strength to smile and dare to hope as they grow sensibly to be socially and politically painstaking of their environment and their questionable future.
