The Spirit of Haiti
Excerpt from a message sent by my sister-in-law, in Jacmel, to her family and friends, via Facebook (as an aside, someone, some day, ought to write a thesis or something on the extraordinary role of Facebook, during this tragedy) :
"Early by 5:00 am every morning, for two hours there are like 500 - 600 people on the streets singing religious songs, dancing and blessing God for being alive. It is like a parade, the local way of healing their pain, it is vey impressive. A real therapy for these victims which have lost everything except their Faith. "
