The Diasporas, The Elites, The Artists, The Haitian Media And Their Roles.
By Wilgeens "AfroLatino" Rosenberg
The Haitian Diasporas living abroad, the Haitian Artists nor the rich Elites of Haiti have not been pro-active enough in tackling the problems of Haiti. They can make better efforts to work together to approach Haiti's issues and fix some problems. Only they have the means and can change the dynamic of the many challenges Haiti faces economically, socially and politically. There needs to be more promotion for this dialogue in the Haitian media abroad and to those Haitian Communities abroad.
Now is the time Haitian presidents need to engage in more Public Relation talk and direct radio addresses in communicating to the mass population of Haiti reassuring them of what is being done generally in the country. Especially with all those proclaimed funds in aid that are promised to enter the Country once there is a managing Government. Haitian Government officials need to start sending out more direct and constant Communiques to the Haitians living abroad as well in engaging them to partake in the changes Haiti needs. These officials must pay more attention to the criticisms, analysis and concerns as well as the new ideas, suggestions and recommendations that many great Haitians in Haiti and abroad have by holding frequent Broadcasted live Hall meetings periodically and regularly. In other words, the Haitian Government and its officials can do a better job using the Internet media to spread their goals, intentions and weekly or even monthly improvement updates of what is taking place in the Country more often. That will generate a better and greater sense of trust, confident and popular support from the Haitian people in knowing their Government is actually at work working for them. It appears that many Haitians are without a clue what is happening to Haiti, or maybe they do have many clues but feel they are not being included in their Country's politics for change.
Without a good sense of true realization to the facts of the problems of Haiti or with the constant denials of respect for Haiti as a Country itself is what is causing Haiti to lose ground of recognition in the face of the rest of the world which taps right into the confidence, conscience psyche of younger generation of Haitians to come to grow up not to care for Haiti themselves. Beside Wyclef Jean, these Haitian youths are being raised and grow up to not having any exemplary figures as role models in their communities or societies whether in Haiti or abroad. They have no one to amass inspiration or aspiration from or to even look up to as role models. Surely there are many stars living in the United States of America also in many other parts of the world for that matter that are Haitian whom could actually stand for something in helping out in the causes and plights Haiti faces as a nation. Yet all these kids are getting are the negative images, the negative issues and crisis of the Country and they are gaining nothing morally cultural from those nowadays useless politicians, diasporas, elite Haitians and the Haitian media. All these sectors do not give a "Diddilli Squat" about the Nation nor do they share a common love for Country. Thus is why these youngsters are growing up without any proper education about Haiti and without any sense of true love and civic duty for the country.
The re-institution, of a modern and improved HAITIAN ARMED FORCES is a major must for Haiti and could serve as a form of hope for Haiti's future generations since those given and named sectors are not fulfilling their obligation. Thus this new Army would serve as an engineering corp kind of Army where kids could start taking part in the construction, development of their country. Assuringly make no mistakes about it, without any institution of role model for future youths to look up to, they too will grow up not caring about the nation and will always see their pockets before the need of the Country just like those current ungrateful politicians and many unpatriotic Haitians are doing today.
