Haiti's Infrastructure
(Photo by John Carroll---April 7, 2013)

I just love the word "infrastructure". We all love to talk about Haiti's infrastructure.

Merriam-Webster defines infrastructure as: The underlying foundation or basic framework (as of a system or organization).

The infrastructure in the picture above is in LaPlaine. This depicts Haiti's infrastructure pretty well.

And this infrastructure looked like this before the earthquake of 2012. Nothing has changed about this infrastructure except possibly the cow.

Haitians raise their families in this infrastructure. And they watch their babies die due to the infrastructure.

Haitians don't like infrastructure so much.  It is not just an academic discussion or exercise for them.
