A Visitor in Uniform

This afternoon the little boys were playing in our front patio when a man in military uniform stopped by the gate. They greeted him animatedly and he asked their names. As we spoke he revealed that he had spent six months in Haiti and was quite moved by his time there. I shared that on our first trip to Haiti in 2008 we had met a Chilean soldier at our hotel's breakfast buffet. Our orphanage director also told us on that trip that the Chilean military were well-respected in their peacekeeping efforts in Haiti.

It is always neat to experience even a little connection like this one to the land of Ian and Alec's birth.
