Haiti's plight shared


After competing for Haiti in the 2000 Olympics, Nadine Faustin-Parker toured the presidential palace in Port-au-Prince as a guest of then-president Jean-Bertrand Aristide. For the past week, she has seen that palace on television again and again - in ruins, its immaculate white dome completely flattened. For Faustin-Parker, UNC's director of track and field operations, that shocking image is impossible to reconcile with that fond memory. (Raleigh News & Observer)
