KREYOL: Haiti Reflexsyon - 7 Fevrier 1986 - 7 Fevrier 2015... 29 lane aprè nou dechouke Diktatè Jean Claude 'Bebidòk' Duvalier... Eske nou gen DEMOKRASI tout bon vre? Ki kote nou ye? Kisa nou akonpli an tan ke peyi? an tan ke pèp? Bay opinion w sou sa...

Haiti has seen lots of politicians talk about democracy, we blame everybody but ourselves -- BLAN sesi, blan sela -- for the fact that the county is stuck in neutral and our so called leaders are pulling her in every direction but FORWARD.

29 years since Haitians got together to get rid of this "brutal dicator" what have we accomplished as a nation?

I really want to hear your opinion about this...

The biggest problem of Haiti is that most Haitians do not take responsibility for their failure.The well to do {10-20%}do not really want to help the poor ones to get better.The great majority of the poor Haitians{80-90%}is not fighting much for a better life and would prefer leave the country if they could.

NOBODY WILL FIX HOME FOR YOU...so it is useless to blame outsiders for this state of things.

A NEW MENTALITY IS REQUIRED BEFORE ANY REAL CHANGE IN
