Three Weeks in Haiti


The numerous Haitians I met told me they are looking to America and God to help them. They have no faith in their own government or much in the NGOs and the United Nations forces that were on the ground before the quake. The United States will be Haiti’s savior, they said, hard words to stomach as I drove through the Lower Ninth Ward to get to Fox 8 for an interview on the morning show. Concrete slabs and totaled houses are still part of New Orleans four and a half years after Katrina. True, New Orleans is on the upswing, but many victims of the storm have never recovered. From my car window I saw how we treat our own and worried about the Haitians who are pinning all their hope of fixing up their country on us.
