Remember that You are Dust

Haiti Trip (October-November); Day Five: My activities today returned me to the barbarous fields of Titanyen.  To a place so swollen with bodies the earth now gives light to the bones of its prey.

Skull - remember that you are dustWhile walking amongst the fallen sons and daughter of Haiti, hundreds of thousands of souls in-total, I couldn’t help but recalled a sign I once read that said: “Remember that you are dust.” Yes, we will all return to dust. However, until I am returned to the earth, I will tend to those who dwell where the dust runs red with blood, where the weeds choke silent the voice of the living and where dignity for the dead is a forgotten promise.

Enough is enough, and this is all I have to say for today.
