It is a series of lessons taught at an early age, but education is one of the main reasons.

You are taught at an early age the value of your country, and the Haitian flag. You learned about the leaders, and their heroism.

It makes you proud, and it stays with you for life. "Pour le drapeau" "Pour la patrie mourire est beau".

This is powerful, and it taught you about what is important in life. Let's not forget about "Civic et Morale" classes, and it is unheard of in the USA. Those lessons started at home by our family, and are reinforced continuously.

We become even more attached to our country, and proud of it after living in other places.

We realize what we had, and appreciate more. We suffer discrimination, and humiliation abroad.

My two children were born in the USA, and are as Americans as apple pies. They both consider themselves Haitians, and have the flags in their cars. They know the stories about the First Black Republic, and our heroes who are like no others in the world.

They love Haitian Foods, and speak Creole.

I could go on, and on. We are like no other people in the world, and it is thank to education in the home or in school.
