Hey gang. Gotta keep this relatively short.
K, will update with pics later.
Today was great, we finally got to get our hands (more?) dirty with the relief effort. Convoy of Hope (great organization) was running a medical clinic and food distribution center off of Delmas 75. Katie treated basic cuts and I carried a stretcher all day!
This disaster has shown me the beautiful side of man kind that we often forget. We want to key in on how we ignore suffering and the plight of others, but the last 4 days has shown me that there are people who will drop everything and come to a country to give stitches that will close a wound that won't get infected and kill some 4 year old. I talked with people today who have responded to every major disaster in the last 10 years. I want to be like those people.
I have felt the love and kindness of strangers who want to see compassion poured out on people.
I know that humanity is capable of terrible things, but I also know we can be wonderful sometimes. Right now I am only experiencing the good we are capable of... I reserve the right to change my mind if food riots break out in the coming days...
Thank you to every reader, donor, and prayer warrior out there. We appreciate your efforts more than you could ever imagine.
BTW if this makes no sense please remember I carried people with broken limbs all day and am typing via candlelight.
