The Children of Haiti

It was one year ago Wednesday, that a powerful earthquake struck Haiti, killing more than 230,000 people.  Since then, less than 5% of the debris has been cleared and about one million people remain homeless.  Children can find play just about anywhere, even in the rubble and debris.  380,000 children are homeless in Haiti, and the very youngest will never remember the earthquake, just the tents they grow up in.  Diana Williams found that you can find hope in the lives and ambitions of these children.
