I wish that I had listened to my father more. I wish I let things that hurt roll off my back more and trusted that being natural and myself was safe. He advised me to pursue so many goals for myself and I didn't listen because I did not believe in myself. He wanted me to trust myself and I fought him on this.

The staff didn't have any idea about what I would ask and none of them were present for the interviews of the others. One by one, they revealed their passion for their work. More miraculously, they discovered during our conversations that they, themselves, had changed.

Ten million children under the age of five die every year. When I started medical school that number was double, and though we have come a long way, this is not good enough.

Trying hard to write about Haiti, but my feelings about the babies in one orphanage in the mountains of Ayiti have haunted me for over a week. I honestly can't sleep and rest without her in my vision.

Not Our Children, Not Our Problem

Dr. Jane Aronson

When we stop behaving like xenophobic, isolationist silos, we might be able to prevent masses of people trying to escape abuse in their communities. We wait for crises to happen. We spend little time and money on prevention and we are in denial about the condition of the human spirit.

I ask that we all include orphans, living without parental care, in our struggle for social justice. They are surely worthy of our marches, our raised up voices, our outraged pleas for the victims of human indecencies.

The orphanages in Haiti are notoriously dark, dank, dirty and uninhabitable by gorgeous, bright, and eager Haitian babies. The light will make their faces shinier and their hearts less sad.

Family stories hold keys to past in special ways. They make history into more than just textbooks, but vivid alive experiences passed through the words of people we know and love. They allow us to honor the past in a way that forwards the future...
