viva ayiti

this remarkable shot was created in port-au-prince, haiti, on 27 march 2010.
Associated Press photographer JORGE SAENZ took this hauntingly beautiful shot of a woman waiting for the bus, at nightfall. i dream of haiti, and my friends there, the good times we shared, the audacious resilence that grows in that soil. from PAP to petit jacmel, i cry for this beloved
land, this country that fought to be free only to be damned by circumstances, natural and political. i promise my children they will visit this country, where one of them was wished into life, and they will understand why she continues to call to me...
