Back Home

I have done a lot of international travel in my life, and I have seen extreme poverty.  I’ve also seen amazing love.

But I have no words adequate to express what we experienced in Haiti.

The things I blog about here now seem so petty. 

I’m going to let it all sink in for a while.  In the next few days I’ll post some pictures, but they do not do justice to the reality.

Hug your kids.  Savor your food.  Take nothing for granted.

Love Wins

    We all really have no clue about how good we have it, even in these “lean” times, do we ? I just left a brunch buffet at a resort in San Diego; I probably ate more in an hour than a Haitian kid eats in a month.

    Glad you’re back home safely. Look forward to some measure of vicarious enlightenment from you.

    I’ve heard it said that while the majority of people in the western world struggle for meaning in life, the majority of everyone else struggle for survival.
