We want to thank respectively Mr. Anderson Cooper from the CNN, and former President of the United State, Mr. Bill Clinton for their special support to the Haitian People after the January 12th 2010 earthquake. Soon after the earthquake, Mr. Anderson Cooper was among the very first foreign group who landed in Haiti. He acted as a journalist and a rescuer at a time. At some point, he shared the suffering of our people who went through surgical operation without anesthesia or pain killer medication. We could even see his heart crying when he was inside the Airport searching all over the containers to find the real medication and bring it to the doctors at the general hospital. His action saved life and relief the pain of those people.Thank you Mr. Anderson.
As a People, we consider Mr. Bill Clinton as half American and half Haitian, or simply a man with a good heart, fills of love and peace for the rest of the world. After that terrible earthquake that destroyed part of Haiti and killed hundreds of thousands of our brothers, sometimes, despite his sickness, he keeps moving back and forth to Haiti in order to bring his help into the reconstruction’s efforts. However, in spite of the willingness of Mr. Bill Clinton to help Haiti, the misery of our People is getting deeper because of Mr. Clinton’s bad advisors on Haiti, and a lack of vision of our leaders in Haiti. For instance, instead of shipping a large quantity of rice and other food products to Haiti, we should concentrate our efforts in the following steps:
1- Provide one cooking stove to every family around the country so they can stop cutting down the remaining trees to build carbon to cook.
2- Start a large civic education campaign all around the country to teach the people, especially the youth the value of the trees in the land so they can protect them In the future.
3- Open a large campaign of reforestation all around the country that will lead to a green Haiti.
Those three steps are essential for a self sufficient food production and a peaceful Haiti.
