View photo gallery: Haiti amputees try to keep hope




In this land of amputees, hope is a metal crutch. You see them reflecting the sun by day and car headlights by night, as people hoist themselves along roads in Haiti, thankful to be vertical. Gleaming Vs of aluminum poke out from rice bags and plastic jugs on tap-tap roofs. They lie in truck beds among bundles of cane and wood strips. What you don't see are artificial limbs.
