    Faces of Haiti No one has begun to estimate the number of injuries from the magnitude 7 earthquake, which destroyed much of the capital Port-au-Prince on Jan. 12. Haitian officials said the death toll was likely to be between 100,000 and 200,000.

    This image first stood out to me because of how great the light was captured, but then I took a closer look at the two people in the photo. The expressions on their face tell the story of the pain and tragedy they have gone through, the shadow of the IV bag on the wall caught my attention as well and let me know that you were in a medical location. I would love to know the follow up to their story if you can share.
