Why Haiti?

Haiti has been on my mind lately.
My heart is heavy and my mind is overwhelmed.
These faces get the best of me everytime.

Why does my heart ache for these children? These mothers? The fathers?
Why do my eyes cry for people I've never met?
Why do I feel this strong magnetic pull to a place I've never been?

God, why Haiti?
Why this unexplainable longing?
Why not somewhere easier?
Like Canada? Or Vancouver?
Or Tsawwassen?
There are lost and broken people here.
Why not here?
Why there?
What am I to do with it?
Sometimes I feel like I know.
Then I doubt.
Why Haiti?
