Really tough getting a connection up here in central Haiti. All I want to say right now is that I've been here less than 12 hours. These people are poor beyond your wildest dreams. Yet, they are the most friendly, helpful, polite, respectful, resilient people not just to me as a foreigner but to each other. I've seen it extended to strangers all day through the truck window. We, as Americans, can learn a lot from Haiti starting with simple acts of courtesy and respect to each other. You would think with such little there would be so much anger. On the contrary.
