It has been almost a year since the devastating earthquake that shook the island nation of Haiti. The world responded in a big way. In fact, writer Jose Antonio Vargas reasoned earlier this year that the Haitian Tragedy helped to create the Global Citizen 2.0. Never before had the world spoke in nearly one voice to such a catastrophe. Certainly, technology aided the response. It was truly a beautiful moment.
As 2010 wore on, the “Rebuilding of Haiti” left the front pages. But it never left our collective hearts. There have been so many Haitian stories of hope and revival, and the pictures continue to be heart-stopping. This video below, courtesy of CNN, is nothing less than riveting. It’s a great story about quake survivors reuniting, and dealing with the pain of that experience. Let’s hope that stories like this will keep the world engaged into 2011 and beyond.
