If you want to know if Haitians love Haiti, try to take away their freedom

Sherine - January 1 2015, 1:18 PM

I'm Jamaican and when I read this, it brought me to place of gratitude and pride.

When you say if you want to know if Haitians love Haiti, then take away their freedom, those are some powerful words.

If only other people of color would approach their heritage the way Haitians do.

Thank you so much.
