"Officials still don't know how many people died in the earthquake, and they'll never know.
The current estimates range fron 50,000 to 200,000....Nobody is keeping count of all the bodies being trucked to mass gravesites.
Beneath the debris are thousands more, lost forever." Carl Hiaasen January 24th, 2010
Gras o, gras o, se pou sen yo lavi miyò...Mercy, mercy, it is for the departed that life is better

Haiti Will Survive When my 10 year old saw a picture of the collapsed National Palace, he noted that the palm trees in front of the palace were still standing and he comforted me by saying, “Isn’t the palm tree a symbol of Haiti, Mommy?Look, the palm trees are still there. That means that Haiti will survive.”
Plant a tree to nurture our future
"Today is a good day to remember that in Haiti, nobody ever really dies. The many thousands who've had the breath crushed out of their bodies in the earthquake, and the thousands more who will not physically survive the aftermath, will undergo instead a translation of state, according to the precepts of Haitian Vodou, some form of which is practiced by much of the population. Spirits of the Haitian dead — sa nou pa we yo, those we don’t see — do not depart as in other religions but remain extremely close to the living, invisible but tangible, inhabiting a parallel universe on the other side of any mirror, beneath the surface of all water, just behind the veil that divides us from our dreams..."
