Haiti Earthquake, A Picture That Says It All

Every once in a while you see a picture that makes you think. I just received a Haiti earthquake picture from my friend Cathia and I kept on looking at it and thinking... If this person is smiling then what is your reason for being sad?

Here is the picture...

A man is laying on a mattress in the middle of the road in Haiti...

Everything around him is destroyed by the earthquake...


He is just laying there, smiling.. and playing with his baby...


They say a picture is worth a thousand words but the smile on this photo is worth a whole lot more...

I just wish I knew the name of the photographer who took this picture. If you do please let me know.

Here is the caption I received with this "Picture of the Month" from Cathia Degand who is, by the way, a Haitian filmmaker, the director of the Haitian movie Kisa Josephine Genyen:

The most beautiful picture I've ever seen in my life.
Precious and innocent.....
Peace and love.
Haiti, June 2010
Il n'y a pas de plus grand plaisir que la vie
(Nothing is more precious than life itself)

So... What's on your mind?belpoz.com/picture-8072
