"Just as the commandment, 'Thou shalt not kill' sets a limit in order to safeguard the value of human life, today we also have to say 'thou shalt not' to an economy of exclusion and inequality. Such an economy kills."
Pope Francis, Joy of the Gospel
My husband John and I are connected to Haiti through John's work there as a doctor and through our organization, Haitian Hearts, which brings children and young adults to the United States for heart surgery. I write about our experiences in this lovely, suffering country. Haiti is the kind of place that breaks your heart, even as it fills it up.
