Day 12 | Raegan Flint
Today I was at the house and most the time I was making and helping with the walls. Then with the time I had left I got to hang with the two kids. The baby was cute and the little girl was really sweet. When your in Haiti you really see what a world with nothing is. I am going to be honest and say, I didn't want to show anyone that I have been touched. I have been in my own world for the last few months and if my parents is reading this I wanna say sorry. I have truly been changed from Haiti. You don't even know how lucky you are until you have done the things we have to do. Going through town, people line up on the sides of the roads to sell anything they can. These people truly have nothing. I don’t mean that they don't have he right outfit to wear, or they don't have a the right shoes. These people don't have anything. Our cook Mary Lou wears the same shirt, day after day. We are not quite sure if its her “work shirt” or if it is her only shirt. Our truck drivers are only payed $4.50 a day. Thats is taking us to the house (25 min.) and to the church (2 hrs.) Lets not mention how awful the roads are. It gets to points where the truck is on a mountain side that looks like this…/////////////. They are not like most Americans that Have trouble with stupid life problems, these people are trying to find food every day. We think what they wear is funny? NO. Thats the least of their worries. I love Haiti and I better be able to come back in two years. When i get home I am going to spend the next 2 years learning their Language. Don't ask me how. HaHa.
