Do You Know Where This Picture Was Taken?
This picture was taken by me yesterday deep in the back part of Cite Soleil.
Can you believe it?
The "worst slum in the western hemisphere" shouldn't look this way, or should it?
The people in Soleil are even more beautiful than this picture.
The parents that I see really care about their children. They run barefoot through Soleil's hot horrible streets with their dying sick kids.
They have nothing to give them until the child is limp with fever...and then it is time to "scoop and run".
And it is usually too late...
Hundreds of thousands of humans living like rats.
No jobs mean no money.
Not enough food or potable water.
No security from gangs that like to shoot, rob, and rape when the sun goes down.
But this is all man made suffering due to corruption from within and without.
It doesn't need to be this way.
