Merci Jesus

This is in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, on a rainy night when all of the cars were breaking down because of the rain. I just thought it was so ironic and simultaneously beautiful that this man looked so down despite "Merci Jesus" written right above him. It begs the question of how people keep their faith despite difficult circumstances, especially in a place like Haiti.
