Michael Brun was a student at Indiana’s Culver Military Academy in 2010 when Hell-on-Earth struck his native Haiti. The massive earthquake killed more than 220,000, injured more than 300,000 others, and left more than a million people homeless. The island was in shambles; there was no communication in or out. Brun waited two weeks before getting word that his father was OK. His mother and sister were also safe; they had been in Guyana attending his grandmother’s funeral.
Tragedy can change a man. Brun gained an appreciation for the important things in life: education, health, friends, and family.
