Last evening a couple of friends and comrades in the struggle for peace with justice, sent me this wonderful message. I feel it must be shared.

- Dear friends, family, and colleagues,
We are delighted to introduce to you our daughter, E. Dessalines F..., born on Friday May 13, 2011 at 5:59 AM (PST).
We decided to reserve her middle name for a beautiful one that would at once serve as an act of solidarity as well as a symbol for the revolutionary times into which she was born, the revolutionary impulse and commitment that lives in both of us, and the rich, if little-known history from which we draw inspiration. Dessalines is the last name of the revolutionary liberator and father of Haiti, Jean-Jacques Dessalines. Dessalines led the only successful slave revolt in the history of the Americas, culminating in Haiti's independence on January 1st, 1804. It is little known fact that Dessalines learned the skills of combat that would help him lead the liberation of Haiti from the enslavers and colonizers, from a woman named 'Gran Toya.' All told, given its revolutionary character, and how it is bound up with the powerful women who enabled and inspired Dessalines toward liberation, E's full name is also an indication that a new soldier against tyranny, racism, oppression, and imperialism, has entered the world.
Fair warning to her future adversaries.
With solidarity, love, and respect, A..., Y..., and E.. Dessalines F...
Indeed, love is stronger than death!
AYIBOBO dear comrades and welcome to the struggle soldier E. Dessalines F.!
