Remember Haiti?

Boston.com has a photo story of Haiti 70 days after the quake.  Right, remember that place where the world rose up to help because Jessica Simpson and George Clooney said so?  Life continues and rebuilding will take years.  Sadly, images like the one above continue to be in the minority.  The photo story does manage to allow a few smiles, but not nearly enough.

The world has moved on from caring about Haiti.  Now it is left to the activists and people who have been passionate about social justice long before the earthquake struck.  Much like the tsunami that struck the Pacific in 2004, most people will forget and then rally behind a new disaster.
