Haiti team post from Miami, May 11

"The Airport of Matching T-Shirts"


One of the distinctive features of Miami airport... Terminals with flights going to Haiti turn into gathering places for people with matching t-shirts. Yellow shirts that say "Love a Child." Blue ones that say Hattiesburg. Medical team shirts. American college and university shirts. it's like being in the narrow part of a funnel where humanitarian and mission workers get squeezed together before being scattered out again. It is an odd sensation. 

On the lighter side, Bret said he wants to join one of the teams that has matching t-shirts. :-) He also says he just saw Van Halen and Britney Spears in the airport.
