    Barry, you can see hope in these photos. They made me smile as well.

    Yeah I smiled at first too…great evocative pics…but as I type this I am weeping. No one should be hungry.

    Wow, Barry! Food! Thank you, so very much, for keeping this devastating experience (sprinkled with hope) in front of me. I’m with your Dad ~ I weep just thinking about these precious people not having FOOD! It’s too much and I want to pretend it isn’t so..but it is. My kids and I are figuring out where we can cut a few more things out of our budget so that we can send some more money to help. Should we send them to World Next Door? Would love your recommendation? We sure don’t have a lot but we have to send what little we have. Blessings to you, Barry! Thank you so much for keeping my eyes on and my heart with the people of Haiti!

    it’s hard to wrap my mind around the fact that people react to simple necessities like food and water the same way i reacted to the unnecessary luxuries that i received for Christmas this year. i am so spoiled, and i still take it for granted most of the time. thanks for making me snap out of it, Barry. keep the images and stories coming. we all need to hear it.
