Not sure what happened in Haiti? Have not een watching telly or leaving the house too much...
Jasmine, there was a very large earthquake that happened yesterday and pretty much destroyed the capital city of Port au Prince. I'm sure that the death toll will be huge.
Haiti is such a poor country and has suffered so much within their political system and with the hurricanes/floods that have happened in the past. When I say poor, I mean the poorest of the poor.
This earthquake is a tragedy.
port au prince.
i once spent a day there..the sky a indigo blue beside an emerald ocean.
i worked on a cruise ship and sailed into the beauty of so many distant ports.
yes, a poor country. where an old tin container is coveted and quickly cut into whimsical designs.
i am heartbroken.
there are no words...
Rebecca, I could barely watch the films or pictures of that suffering. It's simply unfathomable. Having lived in California for 33 years and having experienced a few earthquakes there - the last one being Loma Prieta - my heart goes out to them.
