    One story...

    As patients could not get to our make-shift hospital we had a truck and went out looking for them. Imagine that in the US. I was led (by some ???) to this child in a tent city outside of town. One leg was easily 4 inches shorter than the other due to an impressive femur fracture. I carried him from the truck to the clinic yelled for an Ortho who said, "Damn. Take him to xray." The Japanese kindly had xray equipment and the diagnosis was confirmed. He was taken to surgery for treatment. Three hours later I see him lying on a cot under a tent waiting....

    Once the remainder of the patients we had treated from that area were finished we loaded them onto the truck to take them home.

    As I was carrying this kid with a big-ole cast through another tent city back to the truck I found myself talking aloud. I was looking at all the people in scavenged tents and listening to the random sounds wondering how in the hell I ended up there. As I was babbling aloud I looked down at this boy in my arms and he just looked up at me smiling.

    At that moment I knew I could be nowhere else. I love those people. They are kind, resourceful and contain a fortitude I long to embrace. I know that God will rebuild Haiti......for the better.

    Sorry for that but need to share.

    Thank you all for the comments but it is so not about me. Back to regular programming.

    Thanks so much for sharing this, and for the great work you are doing.

    After being made aware that my driving mocs: would simply not do, I went out and got these:

    I've just returned to the frigid snow covered midwest after several wonderful days in those parts. Had a great time.

    Thanks! There's a really nice selection of ties on their site. International shipping (plus customs) would probably something ridiculous though. Oh well, if I ever stop by New York any time soon... [​IMG]

    Wow. Thank you, everyone. I doubt the responses would have been as strong if one could have smelled my nasty self. One story...

    Louisiana in Humlebæk is great. I go there about once a year, but usually when the weather and temps allow you to really enjoy the beautiful park and surroundings as well.

    Indeed, although I was skeptical when I approached from the street -- the front entrance building looks so small, and the queue was long -- I was quite pleasantly surprised by the whole estate, inside and out. And the snowy weather does give it a serene beauty all its own.

    I did catch the Holdt exhibit. I think my reaction was different than that of the European viewers. It was quite crowded and it was as interesting to me to see the looks on the faces of the other patrons as it was to view the photos themselves.

    Alas, now I am in sunny London. [​IMG]
