More than Rubble: Haiti Displays Touch Hearts


On Jan. 12, pedestrians traversing San Antonio’s Main Plaza moved swiftly from place to place in the uncharacteristically chilly temps.  Still they took time to notice the three tons of rubble tidily showcased in a 10-foot clear cube silhouetted against the age-old San Fernando Cathedral.

The United Methodist Church placed the debris there – as well as in Atlanta; Kansas City, Mo.; and Charlotte, N.C. – to remind people that hundreds of miles away in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, an earthquake one year ago left behind 25 million cubic tons of rubble, 95 percent of which still remains.  Richard Holt was at the display to remind people that everyone can do something to help.
