WE’RE STILL HERE…

August 6, 2010

PLEASE…DO NOT FORGET:

January 12, 2010, a day that changed my life and many lives forever.

The images and stories you heard about Haitians saving Haitians.

The lack of logistics and the solidarity that became the life-saving community efforts.

The work that you or I, or someone close to you took upon themselves to do.

The mortality rate…

The fact that conditions are unacceptable here for our displaced brothers and sisters…

That without solidarity we are going to approach uncertain times.

That if we don’t respect ourselves as Haitians no one else will…

That the people make a country, not any one individual…

That we are all working for the advancement of Haiti…

That we all are united through our love for Haiti…

We can never forget the experience of living throughout the emergency efforts of Haiti- for those of us who were here…

We can never forget that those who are survivors lived through something inexplicable here in Haiti on January 12, 2010.

That it will take a lifetime of healing and rehabilitation to become better.

PLEASE DON’T LET THE MEDIA TAKE YOUR ATTENTION AWAY FROM THE PEOPLE.  DON’T FORGET ABOUT US ON THE GROUND LIVING THE REALITIES HERE.  DON’T FORGET ABOUT THE COUNTLESS AMOUNT OF PEOPLE LIVING UNDER TENTS IF THEY’RE LUCKY WHILE MOST ARE UNDER BEATEN TARPS.  DON’T FORGET ABOUT THE CONDITIONS OF THE PEOPLE.

WE’RE STILL HERE.

In Solidarity

    I won’t forget you. I think of Haiti everyday, hundreds of times a day. Find some justice and peace if you can and know you haven’t been forgotten.
