A Matter of Balance

In contrast to my last post—which I still fully stand by—I would like to offer the following as a means of balancing out my own justified but not life-threatening problems.

I just thought people needed to be reminded of this because I haven’t heard anything about it in the news for a couple of months.

I just wanted to mention that a friend of mine is a missionary there and some photos in which she was “tagged” on Facebook caught my eye.

Just wanted to remind you.

These photos were taken THIS MONTH and large parts of Haiti still look like this…

All photos taken and fully credited to a guy I don't know named Justin Hawkins, who is apparently an engineer and Truman State alum. Should he stumble upon this, I hope he knows I only lifted these because I found them heartbreaking. Good shots, sir. Thank you for posting them.
All due credit to Justin Hawkins.

Please visit my friend Shara Lyn and/or American Haitian Bon Zami for further info about the wonderful work they are doing there.  For what it’s worth, I’m a guy who’s so virtually dead inside I scream profanities at plumbers…and even I give to these folks.
