Beauty in the midst of destruction



The past 2 weeks has taken me all over Port-au-Prince, to little corners of the city that I never would have seen if this silly quake had not happened. And though most of the time, I want to cry because of the destruction and chaos that I see, every now and then, I catch a glimpse of Haiti underneath and I want to cry because of how beautiful it is.

Kez, I simply could not come up with the right words to tell you how much respect and admiration I have for you and for what you have done in Haiti, so I went looking for some. Kahlil Gibran (another Lebanese superstar) said: "You give but little when you give of your possessions. It is when you give of yourself that you truly give.” You have given more in the last couple of weeks than most of us will give in our entire lives, Kez. You have truly made the world a better place and that is an immeasurable gift. We are thinking and praying for you every day. Please take care of yourself. Love, Uncle David, Aunt Kay and Cyrilla.

Hi Kez,

Maurice's teacher is Haitian and he is also keeping up with your blog.I hope you don't mind. His name is Reginald and he is planning to go to Haiti if he can this Feb. He also may want to speak with you. Maurice says Hi
