10th Way to Discover Haiti: A Young Haiti.

I stumbled upon these photos while I was discovering the LIFE app for iPad. I was shocked to see these images of Haiti. People relaxing on a patio, playing at a casino and listening to live music.  Even though the disparity between the rich and the poor was still poignant then, these images of a once happier Haiti gave me hope.

Pictured: Like many places in the Caribbean, Hispaniola was for many decades a gambling and frolicking hotspot for the wealthy. 

Just a thought...

"For beautiful eyes, look for the good in other; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone."
