Year without mercy

With the 2008 Presidential Election in full swing last September, the tropical storms and hurricanes that ravaged Haiti escaped the attention of most…

…but not the Miami Herald, who sent photographer Patrick Farrell to the island nation.  He returned with this photo and others – which earned him a Pulizer Prize – chronicling the horrific toll the storms took on this impoverished country.

Warning:  These photos are not for the feint of heart. They are, in Farrell’s words, heartbreaking.  In fact, you can hear his voice waver and crack in the audio narrative.

Father God:  Open our eyes and our hearts to help those that are in need, as You have commanded us to do.
