Great hope amongst such great tragedy
My family and I had the good fortune of going to Haiti in 2018, to help out at a medical mission, in a town 40 minutes North of the capital Port Au Prince.
We witnessed sickness and extreme poverty but we also saw hope, people who had nothing of their own were willing to help others.
We saw the same laughter, the same sparkle in Haitian kids eyes as one would see in a NYC playground. Only they were playing soccer with a beat up plastic bottle cap.
They didn't have a fancy uniform, no shin guards, no astroturf but were having just as much fun as any American kid (see Video)
