The Horrible Haiti Earthquake

Haiti’s massive earthquake could be the world’s most devastating natural disaster since World War II in relation to the country’s size and economy, causing as much as $14 billion in damage, according to a study released Tuesday by the Inter-American Development Bank. In the poem it says: A poor and desolate land with no means of help (THHE, par. 2). Haiti is the place where everyone is still waiting for some one’s help. People have lost their houses, their jobs, children and everything else for a life. Some say Haiti may rebuild into a great place but others say it will never survive (THHE, par. 3). Haiti was ruined terribly that there is almost no hope for the betterment as we look over the situation.  Haiti was ruined after the earthquake. The people of Haiti are getting some aid but not enough that’s needed. The earthquake stroked the poorest of places which was quite unfortunate. The Haiti earthquake was a catastrophe that disturbed the whole world. Haiti has long played the dark shadow to the bright sunlight. Optimism over Haiti’s impending renaissance has been subsumed beneath the horrors of the earthquake, which has resulted in tens of thousands of deaths and millions of displacements.
