Trip to Haiti After The Earthquake
After much preparation and delays we made it to Haiti on Sunday morning. When we landed and exited the plane I felt in many ways I was back in the Army; helicopters flying by, military personnel and everything that goes with that was all around the airport. And there on the grassy areas of the airport were personnel and supplies from all around the world. Several countries were represented and flying their flags, it was a powerful scene. On our drive to the first stop, we were overwhelmed with all the destruction. The pictures that we had seen on the television were nothing in comparison to the real thing. It seemed like every home or business we seen was damaged or totally destroyed; very few buildings looked like they didn’t have any damage.
