Haitians At Home Helping Themselves

leave a comment »

I was web surfing and came across this cool piece on CNN.com about Haitians in Port Au Prince picking up shovels, broken pieces of buildings, and tools and beginning their own rebuilding effort. As we all know, the UN and World sponsored relief and rebuilding efforts are moving very slowly. Fed up and hungry Haitians have been forced to do something on their own and not just stand pat while the experts formulate a plan.

Of course re-building with shoddy and damaged materials is extremely dangerous, but what real alternative is available at the moment? This just speaks to the indomitable will my people possess, especially during tough times. We may not always get it right, but dammit we try. Check out the story and let we know your thoughts.
