Could be that we’ve had Nepal on our minds lately, but the word for the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: Broken just seems appropriate for that country right now. Not that we have any additional news. But just looking through our pictures taken in 2011 makes us realize that what we saw then may not even be intact after the April 2015 earthquakes.
What we remember, though, is all positive when it comes to our memories of a Habitat International build in a village about 45 minutes from Kathmandu. We watched as the homeowner took a pick ax and broke up the rock in the quarry on his property.
Broken pieces were “daisy-chained” up the mountain where stone cutters continued to shape stones into building blocks for a stone-and-mud home.
And then those broken and shaped stones formed walls for a new home for a young couple and their daughter.
May that circle be unbroken as we continue to help others around the world.
