Wyclef Jean

Watch CBS Videos Online

This piece on Wyclef and his work in Haiti. Its a great testament to the man that, in an age of "look at my watch, car, clothes, etc." dominating his primary genre of music, he has chosen the route of giving back. Something he said here struck a familiar chord with me. He said: "Why me?. Why was I given so much when there are 10 million people here who could have gotten the opportunities I was given?". I ask myself the same question often. I'm not rich or famous by many standards. But by the standards of my relatives in Uganda, I am. I feel like I should be doing something bigger with my blessings. Take 12 minutes to watch this video.

Wyclef is an inspiration.
