“The people of Haiti have been through more, withstood more, found back against more injustice than our President ever has…Haitians slap your hand hard when they shake it. They look you in the eye. They don’t blink. They stand tall and they have dignity. It’s a dignity many in this White House could learn from. It’s a dignity the President, with all his money and all his power, could learn from as well.”- Anderson Cooper
I’m Haitian by heritage, meaning, I wasn’t born there, my passport doesn’t identify by it but Haiti, its people, its culture, charm, occasional drama, it’s soil and everything attached to it was born in me.
