Days 4 & 5, and Farewell Ayiti

Apologies for no word the last day or so. And not much now. Monday was visits to two sites, delivering over 650 meals to children. And a visit to an orphanage to a home for some opf the most profoundly retarded kids any of us have seen; as with much of the Third World, they are swept under a rug. Thanks to one of the most amazing people I have ever met, Gladys, they are not forgotten. Their smiles would light whole continents.
 
Today (the 18th) was Haiti’s Flag Day; the founding of the nation. In light of their recent misery, the joy and spirit were unmatched in my life.
 
I will elaborate on my return. I will just say I am humbled and awed. I need time to gather thoughts. And the power outtages here are against me anyway.
 
Be thankful, each of you, for electricity, showers, clean clothes and food. Although Haitian cuisine is brilliant. For those who can afford it.
 
More upon my return to D.C. In closing, Mesi bokopu, Ayiti. Ke Bon Dye kenbe ou nan ke ti!
