A people without memory is a people without history, today comes the time to forge the memory for a common future.

That history repeats itself in a different way, because great men make history while little men make stories with spin-offs and harmful consequences for generations to come!

It should be noted that North Alexis was the oldest Haitian President, until he reached the National Palace. He was almost eighty (80) years old when he came to power.

Jean-Claude Duvalier, for his part, broke the record for the youngest leader Haiti has ever known.

The Haitian rulers from 1804 to 1908 were almost all old heroes of the War of Independence.

Haiti experienced its first period of political stability after 1915. Once, the occupant left, instability settled and the army took taste in power until its dissolution, in the late twentieth century by former President Jean-Bertrand Aristide, democratically elected in 1990.
