    It's difficult to be happy knowing so many suffer. We must unite.

      but it's dramatic. Where there is real malnutrition in Haiti, children aren't fed these. These are typically made and sold to women  - a form of pika. In the slums in PaP, some kids will suck on them. It is not always the way the media portrays it.

      I'm not fond of sensationalist images or declarations - they do not help show the complexity of what is going on and in turn do not help us find lasting and real solutions.
