A Statement About Haiti You Did Not Expect

Whitney, Young Jr. says: "It's better to be prepared for an opportunity and not have one than to have an opportunity and not be prepared." Haiti has an opportunity but were we prepared?

Things That Make You Go Hmmm
Things That Make You Go Hmmm

When was the last time you read a statement like this about your country?

"Haiti has an ocean's worth of problems, but money shouldn't be one of them."

Should NOT be? Hmmmm...

This is to suggest that right here, right now, Haiti SHOULD not have money problems...

LOL... Wow... But here's the second part...

Haiti has an ocean's worth of problems.

It this the thing they call... The OXYMORON?

If you thought money was cure all for everything, here is your answer.

All the money in the world cannot give you all the things that you are NOT ready to receive.

With all the money being promised to Haiti right now, what could possibly be the problem?

According an editorial, "What Haiti Needs Right Now," published in the New York Times today, "Haiti needs just to get through the next year -- to build housing, provide public health services, security and meet other basic needs."

Knowing my people and how impatient they are sometimes, I am asking myself can they hold on and wait for salvation when it seems so close?

There seems to be light at the end of the tunnel but can we hold on?

Perhaps you can answer that question for me.

Haiti was not prepared for the opportunity she has been presented.

Would you agree?

What are we supposed to learn from this?

Duvalier has nothing to do with Haiti's problem, we are responsible because we refuse to educate our people when it's time to vote. See, in haiti election is done with money, you buy someone a plate of food you're ready fit to be elected.

What we need to do is to help our countrymen develop a sense belonging, and stop this "BEGGIN"mentality so we can move foward.

we have enough ressources in Haiti to be one of the richest country in the hemisphere, they know and that's the reason why my friends Haiti is it is today,.

In order for Haiti to move forward, Duvalier must die. Duvalier is not dead yet. His ideology and doctrine are still alive and are being practiced.

We must make a conscious effort to eradicate the duvalierist-tontonmacoutist mentality.

It served its purpose for the last 53 years (1957-2010).

YOU ARE RIGHT ON. THOSE ARE EXACTLY THE REFORMS THAT ARE NEEDED IN HAITI WITH THE ADDITION OF SOLAR AND WIND POWER.PLUS THE ELIMINATION OF THIEVERY AT EVERY LEVEL OF GOVT. BRIBERY AND EXTORTION SHOULD = PRISON.

TO INTEGRATE THE DIASPORA - ALL BORN OR NATURALIZED HAITIANS SHOULD HAVE THE RIGHT TO VOTE AND TO HOLD OFFICE.

IF YOU RESIDE IN HAITI YOU SHOULD VOTE IN HAITI.

We need to have different plans to bring Haiti to the 21 st Century, and we all must work together.

We must relocate the homeless into temporary housing, and I am OK with the temporary tent city. I do not want to see Haitians still living in tents the next five years, and am worried that the tents might become a permanent housing solution.

We must decentralized the country, and move the population to the countryside.
