Haitians sleep in the streets in the aftermath of the earthquake. This photo shows the Haitian narrative of hopelessness. The article attached, written a day after the earthquake, talks about the destroyed houses, schools, and hospitals, and ends with "It is a disaster." The photo was probably chosen for the article because it conveys the extent of the damage in Haiti, a street packed with people trying to sleep conveys a sense of desperation and loss.
