Day 4. Haiti Self-Portrait Project

With 4 out of 5 of the team sidelined by a super fun stomach bug the last couple of days, we should be back on track tomorrow to visit encampments with the project.  

Encampment residents have by and large been suspect of Westerners coming to “help”, as most of them have been in their situations since January 2010 and nothing at all has changed, except for some of them being forcibly evicted from what little they have.  

We are lucky enough to be working with FRAKKA (The Force for Reflection and Action on Housing), a coalition of Haitian community groups working on housing rights, as well as Under Tents; they have the community ties and have built the trust over the years which has allowed the Self-Portrait Project gateway into these encampments.  

Looking forward to what’s ahead for the rest of the trip.

My solution to "Gun Control"

Now the friends I have who are gun lovers are going to hate / love this at the same time! Because I do feel that people have the right to protect / defend themselves! But at the same time its the people who aren’t responsible enough to actually have said guns that should be watched more. I for one would say lets get rid of all these high tech, automatic death machines and bring back Muskets! Yes! You heard me right! MUSKETS! There would be a lot less senseless killing IMHO! You’d at least have time to settle down some! The loading times were ridiculous! *Someone steps on your new “J’s”* “MOTHA FRAKKA!!” *Loads up the Musket* … “You know what.. they weren’t that expensive anyway, I got them at an outlet!” OR the victims would at least have a head start on running away! I’m just saying that there would be a lot less shootings if all guns were Muskets! That or stabbing crimes would just go up! But we ALL know that the warmongers and “Merchants of Death” would never let that happen! I know it could never happen okay? I’m not R-Tardie here! I’m #JustTypin …
