Year Ago: Haiti Still Recovering

Some people here are marking this painful day in bed, the hurt too much to bear. By the early hours of the first anniversary of the deadly earthquake that rocked Haiti, Haitians had visited individual tombstones and passed by mass graves, where hundreds of tiny wooden crosses mark the spot where tens of thousands of Haitians are buried. Many united in prayer. On the Champs de Mars survivor camp, thousands of Protestants gathered as pastor after pastor exhorted worshipers to “celebrate life'' amid praises of “hallelujah.'' A year ago Wednesday, a 7.0 earthquake killed a city's worth of people; the government here estimates as many as 300,000. Their names have not been logged, and some are still under rubble/Miami Herald. More here. (AP photo: Rose S.

Question: Are you still affected by the tragedy caused by the Haiti earthquake a year ago? How?
