Photo taken in Cap-Haitian Haiti during the last days of an exceptionally challenging 2010, at 8am.  The fisherman goes out every morning knowing that his catch will come.  January 1st is Independence Day for Haiti (1804) – a spirit of exceptional optimism and strength that we are blessed in having with us, every morning.
