about the visit...

It's amazing to notice how strangers are so willing to go into one of the poorest countries in the world to help and do what they can to raise awarness, when most haitians dont even want to go back. Or if they do, it's for vacation purposes! We need to stop thinking that it's going to change overnight like magic and start doing something of our own...We are seriously kidding ourselves if we think that. Our country is not like it was before and the situation is more than critical! Awarness has to start in our own hearts, because no one can save us if not ourselves...Our ancestors got us our freedom without the help of anyone, right?

Why should it be any different 202 years later?

It is a poor way to repay all the sacrifice and suffering that they went through to give us our independance.

L'Union fait la force...it's time people understand the true meaning and value of that statement, once and for all
