A Year Ago

I want to thank NASA for running up and taking this picture of Haiti for me. The island there in the middle, that's La Gonave, home to 100,000 precious people.

One year ago this week a terrible thing happened. On January 12, 2009, at 4:53 in the afternoon the earth shook Haiti hard for about one half minute. "This was our 9-11," I remember someone saying.

Have you heard about oil company plans to develop La Gonave?
