Thank you for all of the lovely comments on my Haiti posts. Haiti obviously holds a very special place in my heart and I’m so glad I can share a little bit of my trip with you. In case you missed any of them:
Leaving Haiti is always a little odd. Part of you is ready to go home, ready for clean water and familiar faces of loved ones but part of you isn’t ready to leave. Ready to go back to your busy life full of emails, phone calls and the general craziness of life. As much as I hate being disconnected, it is oddly refreshing to be without the things I can’t live without at home. (ahem, iphone) I did look forward to yoga and cooking when I returned home, but I already miss the delicious meals that were shared with a wonderful team and most of all, the amazing people that I met along the way.
During our stay in Port-Au-Prince I heard something that I’ve been thinking about ever since, “If everyone would just help one other person.” How true. We can’t all save Haiti, or any other country in desperation, but we can all do our best to help one person, whether it be our neighbor, a friend or a complete stranger on the otherside of the world. And I’ll take that lesson with me for the rest of my life.
