Stand in Solidarity With the Women of Haiti

women-haiti

 

 

Take a moment to imagine life in constant fear of s****l violence.

Imagine trying to survive without police protection, without adequate housing, without the ability to petition the courts for justice. Contemplate life without access to medical care to meet your basic physical needs following an assault — let alone your need to recover from the mental and emotional t****a.

If this sounds like life hundreds of years ago and a world away from the United States, take a moment to consider that it’s reality right now, just a two-hour flight from my Congressional District.

It’s the reality of gender-based violence right now in Haiti.

    Wow, there are some miserable people who responded to this post. I live inSouth Florida and have been all over the US but there is no where here that compares to the injustices that these women on Haiti experience. Its true we do need to fix our own country but there’s nothing wrong with praying for others or helping others (if you can). The saying goes if you don’t have anything nice to say then don’t say anything at all.

    Wherever injustice is there should be a means to expose and prevent it. These women are someones mother, sister, daughter, friend etc. How would you feel if this was a woman you know,love and care for that were in this situation. Yes, I know we have those problems and worse here,however, we are our sister and brother’s keeper. Thank you for the information. They and all of you will remain in my constant prayer because God is listening.

    Dont fool yourself. Haitiens came here to helf america in it fight with the british for its independence. In Franklin Square in Georgia, there is a bronz statue of five Africans. One of them is Henri Christof. The second presedent of Haite. Thomas Jefferson did all he could to h**t Haite, he called them Canibals from the terrible nation.Haite became independent in 1804, america did not recognize them until 1862.If Haite was a European nation it would not be the poorest in thye Western Hemisphere.Haite helped Simon Boliva to help free many Countries in South America.The official religions are Catholicism and Vodoo and African Authentic Religion.

    Some one should start a petition to make the Haiti government protect its women citizens. I’ll be among the first to sign.

    To fix our home, we will need to stand up to corruption and racism. It appears we will never do that collectively. So the few who really want to see a change should not force those in other countries to get in line behind a country filled with scared foolish people. The few should move to help the people in other countries.
