A devastating earthquake hit Haiti yesterday near Port-au-Prince, not far from where this school is located and these pictures were taken. Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere and this natural disaster will bring untold new challenges. Blanchard school has suffered damage and has major cracks. Let us remember the beautiful people, our island neighbors in Haiti and do what you can to help.
