Haiti is lost January 17, 2010Posted by visceralrebellion in Uncategorized.
I’m watching a news report on Haiti and the reports that Haitians will become violent if they aren’t “given” what they want and need.
Frankly, I’m disgusted by the general Haitian attitude that they are owed anything whatsoever from anyone else in the world.
No, Haiti, you are NOT owed a single thing other than the respect given to all human beings as the sole agent of their own lives. Haiti is a shithole because Haitians want it to be a shithole, or at the very least don’t care that it’s a shithole.
My faith requires me to extend charity. Watching the videos of the injured, especially children, is gutwrenching.
And then I hear the demands. I hear that the Haitians are simply sitting around waiting for someone else to do what needs done. They can pile corpses in the street to block trucks, but they can’t remove debris from those same streets so trucks can move through.
It is sad knowledge that Haiti will be hell no matter what amount of money is poured into it, no matter how many well-meaning aid workers toil countless hours. Haiti is hell because the Haitians don’t care.
So why should I?
