I don't have much to say on what went down in Haiti. I can't imagine the torment Haitians must feel at this moment. All I can say is to those of you reading this is, look into your hearts and find a way to help.
For me Haiti is a symbol of true freedom. A nation founded by a people under the heel of oppression and slavery. We must not forget while we live here in the states and try to make a way through the system, when the law books treated my people as cattle Haitians fought and won. Since then Haiti has been plagued with economic hardship and political unrest.
Lets help them to rebuild their country and heal their wounds. Below is a message from my close friend who happens to be Haitian with info on how we can help.
