24 hours ago we posted that we had experienced an earthquake. Little did we know how devastating it had actually been. We felt significant shaking all the way here in Santo Domingo but we thought we had just experienced a small, local earthquake. Even at school today we heard very little about the devastation in Haiti. Generally speaking, Dominicans don’t like Haitians and Dominicans have thus far acted accordingly. It is sad because DR is so close but at the same time we are a world away. Our exposure to Haitians here in DR has been nothing but positive. They are very hard working, resourceful, loyal and down to earth. We hope for those still trapped and pray for the survivors who have experienced so much loss. If you have the opportunity to help in anyway it would be much appreciated.
