Miss Lorine, You have the same thoughts as I
Haiti is a loner.
The only country with it's language among english and spanish speakers.

I can say we have done very well so far despite all the chalenges.

Also Baby doc has thought poverty is OK.
I remember when I was a child back in Haiti, there was a song that said: "Papa Duvalier si nou pa gin largent sa pa di nou anyen parceque nou abituer nan mise et soufrance".

Water, electricity, food etc. are very easy to fix.
Do you know how I can get in touch with the Haitian Government?
