    Gary, How are relief supplies getting to the people in Port-au-Prince and Petionville? It seems like some people have actual tents, and others just have tents made out of sheets or tarps. I have the sense that many people are just having to use their own wits and resources to survive. Does the UN have specific drops of aid to specific areas like the Petionville park? In your pictures, I perhaps see local produce and supply, but are people receiving food from the food programs?

    The worst thing an individual (especially children) has to suffer is the lose of its home especially during an earthquake. A home signifies security, belongingness, love ,and everything that makes life bearable and stable. A different perspective though (in case of Haiti) is that home is where the heart is. The confines of a physical home when removed just shows that a person's strength lies on his own instinct and what lies within his heart. All answers always lie in every man's heart when everything quantifiable and measurable is lost. And no, it doesn't have to be ritz either. 🙂
