Shock lingers as Haiti recovers

“TV doesn’t do justice to how

widespread the damage is,”

Maine’s Coast Guard commander says

Before he left for Haiti, Capt. James McPherson of Kittery was given a little toy shark by his 5-year-old son, Connor.

McPherson, commanding officer of Coast Guard Sector Northern New England in Portland and South Portland, gave the shark to a 4-year-old boy near the American embassy in Port-au-Prince. The little boy, covered with dust from the ruined city, plays with the toy all day.

McPherson is amazed at how well the children of Port-au-Prince are rebounding from the earthquake that destroyed their city.

“They’re just completely resilient. But it makes you wonder – what’s his future, what’s going to happen from here?” said McPherson.
