“Haitians are not ‘boat people’ as they are often termed in the US,” noted Frantz Michel. They are warriors—heroes who survived terrible times like the Middle Passage, centuries of mistreatment, humiliation and depravation. They have excelled against all odds, always resilient and make the impossible sound futile. Yet, the country is still in need for greater help as situations worsen every day. Can God Save Haiti? uncompromisingly challenges toughest issues that Haiti is facing now. In this chef d’oeuvre, Michel poses disturbing questions that will make Haitians and the International community look in the mirror and ask why Haiti, despite all the money said to enter the country, yet the people are in more dire need than they were before. Why poverty levels continue to escalate? Why millions continue to suffer? Michel is aware that Haiti needs a paradigm shift, a change that drove him to connect the historical dots that have brought the nation to this junction. Can God Save Haiti? is not about scapegoating any country or anyone for the misfortunes of Haiti—even though former US President Clinton apologized for destroying the production of rice of Haiti which is the very diet of the Haitian people. Before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, speaking of the destruction of the food production in Haiti, he admitted: “I am not pointing the finger at anybody. I did that. I have to live every day with the consequences of the lost capacity to produce a rice crop in Haiti to feed those people, because of what I did. Nobody else… So we genuinely thought we were helping Haiti when we restored President Aristide, made a commitment to help rebuild the infrastructure through the Army Corps of Engineers there, and do a lot of other things. And we made this devil’s bargain on rice. And it wasn’t’ the right thing to do…” This book is a call to action not assigning blame—an attempt to raise a global conscience for a better and sustainable Haiti. Can God Save Haiti? demands that we reverse our self-defeating attitudes and behaviors. Provocative and puissant, Can God Save Haiti? dares to expose the turpitudes of Haiti and other NATIONS so that the country can be restored.
