Every Haitian Is From Port-au-Prince, Potoprens Kraze, Now What?

Food For Thought - My father said this to me a long time ago and I wanted to share it with you today:

"Abitan voye pitit li lekol potoprens pou-l ka aprann, pou-l retounen vinn sevi kominote-l.

Pitit rive potoprens, li rete potoprens, li pa janm tounen kote-l soti-a.

Se sak fe tout moun se moun potoprens, Haiti tounen 'Repiblik de Potoprens' "


The Haitian country man sends his sons and daughters to Port-au-Prince to learn, to return, and to serve their community.

When they arrive in Port-au-Prince, they stay in Port-au-Prince, and they never return home to serve their community.

That's why every Haitian is from Port-au-Prince, Haiti became 'The Republic of Port-au-Pince'.


Potoprens Kraze.. men Haiti la pi red!

Go home kid...

It's time to give back to your community.

What a beautiful to be from province (Countryside), where the water is crystal clear and clean.

Many old but amazing trees like coconut, grapefruits, avocados, plantain, corosol, cachimans and many more.

If you are really from the province and trying hard to hide it. You should be ashamed of yourself.

what you say there is a little truth in it. But it is not the country men who are responsible of stealing the international funds.

The plans have always been made in Pot-au-prince.

Every haitian knows Port-au-princians are born to be gansters.

Ils ne veulent pas la decentralisation de sorte qu'ils peuvent faire des
