Unbreakable Joy

Rachel Mavis's avatar Rachel Mavis

In 2010, Haiti was rocked by a devastating earthquake. Homes, businesses, and lives were destroyed. To a country that already struggled with deep poverty, the earthquake deepened the pain. I have had the gift of traveling to Haiti, though, and what I experienced there touched my heart. It is not a country filled with hopelessness and destruction - it is a country filled with loving, bright, beautiful people, marked by an unbreakable joy in the midst of their dire circumstances. In my art, may you glimpse that unbreakable joy.
