After an emotional homecoming for the big man, Skal Labissiere took to the Kings’ website to share some thoughts on his recent trip to Haiti. Fair warning, you might get a little misty eyed.
After seeing my friends for the first time since 2010, being reunited with everyone at my old high school and having a memorable Day 2 of Camp S.K.A.L, I went home.
Well, where my home used to be.
As soon as I got out of the car, it felt like scenes out of a movie about my life. Everything felt the same, when at the same time, so much has changed.
The blog post, aptly titled “Home”, really shows Skal’s reverence for his country, and he has no issue getting a bit poetic by the end.
It’s hard to find a word to describe what all of yesterday was; there’s nothing in any language that can describe the feeling of returning to where you belong and reliving the memories that you’ve dreamed of.
Home is where we all belong, and when you’re away for as long as I’ve been, that feeling of joy returning is unlike anything else in life.

Jokes aside, it’s clear that Skal wants to do everything he can to give back to his community. We could all learn a little something from that.
