Haiti is the world’s oldest black republic and the second-oldest republic in the Western Hemisphere, after the United States. Although Haiti
actively assisted the independence movement of many Latin American countries and securing a promise from the great liberator, Simon Bolivar, that he
would free their slaves after winning independence from Spain.
Haiti is the only African Republic in the Caribbean, and it was the Spanish, the French, and the British that made it what it is to day. The African
people from Africa were slaves when they entered Haiti as plantation workers, and in those great days of their lives, they were treated badly. Their
blood and sweat was left on the land and about one million people had to be sacrificed to make Haiti – Haiti. Now they live freely and poorly of what
their ancestors had to endure. Once upon a time Haiti was the richest country in the Caribbean. They flourished in many ways. They were able to grow
their own food and they made money from that, but they were always unfortunate in many ways, and their rulers made it that way.
The people of Haiti are still poor and they are longing for some one to love them and some one to take care of them and hold them tightly in their
arms. That is their great wish! Bless them!
