Don't Dance on the Street Corner and Other Lessons I Have Learned in Haiti
A Collection of MemoirsBook - 2016
Haiti is one of the top five most impoverished countries in the world, the poorest in the western hemisphere. On the afternoon of January 12, 2010, a catastrophic earthquake rocked Port au Prince, Haiti. The rumble was felt over fifty miles away, including at Destiny Village in Pierre Payen. The aftermath was incomprehensible. The death toll estimates range from 100,000 to 300,000 Haitians, and thousands of children were left orphaned and homeless. It is at that time that author Lori Ann Cresap's passion for Haiti began. She has since walked its dirt roads, entered its mud shacks, and held its dying children. In Don't Dance on the Street Corner and Other Lessons I Have Learned in Haiti, Lori Ann Cresap journals her every experience in a personal, raw, and honest way. Follow her as she learns Haiti and its people and experiences her own personal and spiritual growth.
