As Bob and I watch the news of Haiti and the people there trying to make their way out of the rubble. He has been telling me "Guatemala Stories" about his experience in the Guatemala earthquakes during the 70's and 80's. I have never experienced real disaster like that. When he speaks, I see a sadness come over him. When I sent a donation to Haiti, I honestly didn't know what or where it would help. When Bob shared with me, I realized how he has helped so many people in ways his friends and family don't even know.
Although he tries to be positive about the aid from the US, I think he saw some pretty devastating things. I have cut and pasted a post he wrote a few days ago on the USN knife forums. Bob walks around with all these experiences from his life in Central America. I'm pleased he could share his experience with us.
