go to
Haiti ?

A Response from: Joseph Alfred, Educator

There is a life in

Haiti beside politic. Why go
Haiti ?
Haiti is the cornerstone of civilization,
yes my friends in
Haiti you see the meeting of three
continents: Europe, Africa and
America . You have to see for
yourselves this mysterious land.

Haiti does not have too many
friends around the globe. Its birth had put in jeopardy the slavery
system in which many countries were relied on for free or cheap labor.
Its naissance had divided
America that had wanted to be a new
Europe in this continent. No wonder why
the first black nation was not invited in the first conference of this
continent despite helping many to get their freedom.

Yes my friends, my brothers had fought for
the freedom of the
United States of America , we
had fought for the freedom of various countries in America Latin. Go to
Savannah, GA without the help of our ancestors, the British could have
captured the U.S. troops; go to Caracas, Venezuela; we had abolished
slavery into the Dominican Republic but unfortunately they remembered
only that we had occupied them for 21 years that I dispute. Go to
Venezuela and try to talk about Haiti in a negative way in various
colleges, with the average citizen, they will defend Haiti fiercely, so
far it is the only country I know of respect us for helping them getting
their freedom. It is unfortunate
Venezuela had not become a great economic
power, but I can tell you Haitians are well received in

Venezuela .

Why go to

Haiti ? You need to know a
little about our history, the second independent country in this
continent and the second independent Black Country in the world after

Ethiopia .
Haiti , the
land of
Louverture “le premier des noirs” people are
talking about Nelson Mandela, but I had a Toussaint who was not
concerned about luxurious lifestyle, he had used his position to help
free his brothers and sisters from the worst kind of slavery ever
existed in the world. Today, it is unfortunate that our current leaders
are fighting for their personal interest at the expense of the country;
none of them can come close to Toussaint Louverture. We have Charlemagne
Peralte who had fought fiercely the
U.S. occupation and we have Daniel
Fignolé who had accepted the presidency to prevent a

U.S. invasion.

We had great people, my friends.

Why go to

Haiti ? You should go for
yourself and explore the land of the artists, the land of creativity,
the land of the hope, the mystery land with its voluptuous mountains,
its deserted valleys and its endless sea.

Why go to

Haiti ? Go! you will see for
yourself that Haitian people stick together, and go along with each
other. This had explained the survival of this country despite this
misery. Before going to
Haiti , go to
Miami , New York ,
Montreal ,
Bahamas ,
France , Guadeloupe and now
Atlanta , you will
see lot of workers who send millions every months to help their
relatives back home. Most of you in this forum are either professionals
or students and belong to the middle class and the upper class. To
Haiti , ask yourself a
question why Haitian folks who are working over here are sending almost
all their paychecks back home to help relatives? Some time, they are
living in a poor condition over here but still send the money,

Today the Haiti situation is a
little “hecky” but this happen to many people in the world in various
time, the French Revolution, the Decadence era, the civil war in the
U.S., the rise and fall of the Soviet Union, the conflict
Israeli-Palestinian, the Irish conflict, the problem between black and
white in the U.S. will it ever be resolved. Take an example of the State
of Israel today, after 5 thousand years of misery the Jews had organized
themselves and created the State of Israel. My friends,

Haiti will comeback and rise
again do not underestimate the will and the determination of Haitian
People, it would have been a grave mistake to do so, please check our
history. May 18,
1803 will repeat again,
Nov 18, 1803 will repeat again, no doubt
about it and January
1, 1804 will repeat again. I hope you don’t ask the same
question Nicodeme had asked Jesus that what do you mean “Si on n’est pas
né de nouveau on ne verra pas le royaume des cieux”

My friends, a new
Haiti is coming, at my age I may not see
it, those of you who are twice or twice and half of my age in this forum
may not see it either, but one thing remains certain there will be a new

Haiti .

Explain: Contrary to what people might
say, we have resource in
Haiti , the resource of

Haiti is the land itself, its
location, its mountain, its sea, its rivers, its small islands, its
shape. My friends, the country has not used its resources, La Tortue one
day will be a great Tourist Attraction, La Gonave will become an Amazing
Island, l’ile-à-Vache will become an attractive place and La navase
(Navassa Island= A war will be fought for that Island) will become a
Historic Place for the new martyrs of the new Haiti.

Why go to

Haiti ? You will visit the
City of Poets: Jeremie; the city of Hope: the Valley of Jacmel; the
mysterious region: Cap Haitian just drive to Milo where you will visit
the eighth marvelous monument in the world: the Citadelle; the rice
city: l’Ester, and a foreign city: Ouanaminthe in that city you don’t
know if you are in today’s Haiti but it gives you an idea about the new
Haiti, you will meet open minded people with creativity.

Why go to

Haiti ? Many had portrait
Haiti negatively even
the dissenting sons and daughters of this country, but my friends
Haiti is not

Port-au-Prince . Can you imagine the
crime rate in Washington
DC , visiting only DC, you won’t say that you have
visited the United
States , unless you are joking. As a
real tourist, you will visit Disney world, Universal Studio, Coca Cola,
Stone Mountain park, Hollywood, and many zoos (..) the same thing
applies if you visit Haiti.
Go to the CITADELLE , visit Pestel, Fort-Liberte, Ouanaminthe,
Hinche, Cayes, Gonaives, Jeremie, La Tortue, and Mirebalais ( I don’t
even mention Port-au-Prince that’s mean, it is not important; do you
care about visiting Washington DC when you visit the United

Why go to

Haiti ? Just go and see for
yourselves. You will see people who will open their home for you, they
will help you freely my friends, and our hospitality is none to one.
This is why many who had visited

Haiti felt in love with the
country. Since I’m a Haitian native you might think that I’m biased, I
invite you to approach anyone who had visited
Haiti (except the detractors of the
nation), they will tell you that the country is poor but

Haiti is an amazing place to
visit. How these people survive the worst misery of human kind? Why so
many who had visited
Haiti open their heart to
assist Haitian kids? Why do you see many

US citizen, Canadian citizen
and others are more Haitian than Haitian? Why many foreigners are
learning the Creole language just to go to assist our brothers and
sisters? Why? Now, Why go
Haiti ? Why go to

Israel ? Why go to the
States ? Why go to
Canada ,
Bahamas or

Jamaica ? My friends, visiting
more countries will expend your knowledge, will make you more sensitive
toward other people and make you aware that the world is not what you
see in your environment.
