There is an organized world within the tent cities that have cropped up all over Port-au-Prince since the Jan. 12 earthquake. I meet a young woman who gave birth the day of the earthquake and a boy who races a toy car he made from trash.
One week after the earthquake, a 15-day-old baby and 76-year old woman were found separately underneath collapsed buildings. I find solace in these stories and wonder about the courage it must take to survive such situations.

On my second night reporting for ABC-TV in Port-au-Prince, we head to the hospital to see how victims are faring. Attached to the building is the morgue, quickly overflowing.
On Day 1 for me in Port-au-Prince after the quake, the scope of devastation steals my breath. Then, I have to tell Haitian friends in the states that their loved ones didn't survive.
The Haiti earthquake that claimed tens of thousands of lives was largely centered around the densely populated coastal areas in the country's south. Much of the country was untouched.
As we drove from the airport through the rubble-strewn city, I felt lost on the streets I knew well.
The night after the 7.0 earthquake reduced Port-au-Prince to rubble, our chartered plane got the OK to land at the damaged airport. Was I going to be able to keep my emotions in check and do my job as a journalist?
