A Floating Casket

This picture has been haunting me ever since I took it on Sunday.  It’s a grave in the National Cemetary in Port-au-Prince that had been opened.  For some reason, to think that this grave was just sitting there open with the casket floating in the water stuck with me.

The idea that there is a body in there was really creepy too, and I felt sad for the family of the person inside.  I guess it’s one of the cold realities of Haiti though, this was not the only grave that had been opened.  The worst part was that many of the other open graves were left empty.
