SALT LAKE CITY -- It's been one year since a massive earthquake rocked Haiti, devastating the country. Wednesday was a day of prayer to remember the 230,000 people killed and the roughly 1 million left homeless by the quake.

UN Special Envoy to Haiti and former U.S. President Bill Clinton says it will take time to rebuild Haiti to where its residents can be a self-sustaining people. No one understands that more than Utah resident and American Red Cross disaster organizer Jana Sweeney.
