Our Beloved Haiti by Elizabeth Louis

Our beloved Haiti continues to be in a pruning season where the mass is courageously attempting to purge out unacceptable political, dire livelihood circumstances, and violent across regions and sectors. The people of Haiti depase fatige, yo bouke (are beyond fatigued, they are tired of being tired)! The elements of the current times have been brooding for many decades and are reaching tipping points that have never been experienced or witnessed before in our homeland. The responses and cries cut through generations that are desperate for this relentless period to be over, where people’s voices are affirmed, their human rights are honored, their concerns are listened to, and their holistic well-being of social, psychological, community, and Haitian identity are fully supported and validated.

The call for peace in all forms is not just the absence of violence and insecurity but truly a peace that attends to the needs of the people, that edify the souls of the people, and pay homage to our forefathers and foremothers who sacrificed for the birth of this nation to be free and liberated, by living productive and responsible lives that practices the Haitian

values of unity, strength, hope and faith. Collectively, these values and the ideals we have for our country cannot remain as desired dreams but must traverse the compounded challenges of our reality. As Haitians in Haiti and across the diaspora, what will it take for us to be one with each other to combat forms of injustices and let our spirits guide us in restructuring a society that upholds our narratives and vision for a Haiti that is representative of what we envision; rooted in the voices of the people, with the trunk of our Ayisyen identity, branched on the intentional efforts of today, and the leaves that flow our progress.

 

Our Beloved Ayiti (Haiti) by Elizabeth Louis

Our beloved Ayiti continues to be in a pruning season where the mass is courageously attempting to purge out unacceptable political, dire livelihood circumstances, and violent across regions and sectors. The people of Ayiti depase fatige, yo bouke (are beyond fatigued, they are tired of being tired)! The elements of the current times have been brooding for many decades and are reaching tipping points that have never been experienced or witnessed before in our homeland. The responses and cries cut through generations that are desperate for this relentless period to be over, where people’s voices are affirmed, their human rights are honored, their concerns are listened to, and their holistic well-being of social, psychological, community, and Ayitian (Haitian) identity are fully supported and validated.

The call for peace in all forms is not just the absence of violence and insecurity but truly a peace that attends to the needs of the people, that edify the souls of the people, and pay homage to our forefathers and foremothers who sacrificed for the birth of this nation to be free and liberated, by living productive and responsible lives that practice Ayitian values such as: unity, strength, hope and faith. Collectively, these values and the ideals we have for our country cannot remain as desired dreams but must traverse the compounded challenges of our reality. As Ayitians in Ayiti and across the globe, what will it take for us to be one with each other to combat these forms of injustices? When might we let our spirits guide us in restructuring a society that is of our own creation and making? A nation that is rooted in its value for life, liberty, and togetherness. A nation tall and unwavering as is the trunk of Ayitian legacy. A nation whose influence branches over the span of the globe as is creates shade and refuge for the meek. A nation who cycles its leaves and flowers as a constant reminder that we must undergo seasons of pruning and of blooming. A nation of justice.
