Day 5: Sakala

If you've been following our trip and want to help Haiti, please visit the What If? Foundation's website:  Our trips to Haiti have been inspired by the wonderful work of the people at What If?

The major part of the Haiti trip has come to a close today, with two remarkable days at Na Rive and Sakala.  We've seen, felt, and experienced things that we will carry for the rest of our lives.  For tonight's blog each student is sharing  one photo/video that captures the single most important idea that they never want to forget.
