Standing at the Threshold of Heaven

Today’s view from the ground: Tokyo, Japan, April 2011   In the above photo, a health care volunteer in Sendai helps treat a radiation reaction on a woman’s face after she was evacuated from the Fukushima area.

Fighting Cholera in Northern Haiti

Fighting Cholera – Part 1 Today’s view from the ground: St. Louis du Nord, Haiti, November 2010 Forty-eight hours ago, I did not expect to be in northwest Hispanola on the front line of the fight against cholera.
