This is not your typical “fluffy” one year celebration.
What people expect you to know is all the cheesy, fluffy story about their journey. I could spend the whole day marking our new milestone but I was never known for blowing smoke. Just by the fact that I am right back behind this black desk doing what I think I do best is how bad this topic needs to be addressed.
That one word once heard makes us have that jerk reaction to roll our eyes and raise our eyebrows, I wonder if it is because we are irked or bothered about all its red flags and concerns. It is too common to hear “kilè sa ap chanje” when till this day it rhymes too well with “nay”. What is there to say when complain is the main way to stay away.
Well for starters a year ago today I, along with five others bothered to focus on the betterment of our homeland and its residents. To be frank we were getting weary of hearing about advances never happening in Haiti. A community so proud of clinging on history, not even capable of providing the bare necessities for its citizenry. ECLAT could not bear with that.
It has not gone swimmingly as we have perceived. Not all we hoped stick was a positive hit. This rocky road we decided to follow is plagued by curves and pot holes. Indeed our team is resilient, facing failure and fearing to be unsure. We rely on each other, slowly crawling, but moving forward.
We had the pleasure of making our very first Fundraiser. This gesture although not stellar, provided enough cheddar to continue in our endeavor. There were some error but ask whoever and they wouldn’t tell you anything bitter. Artists, families and friends came all to attend and contributed hence. Progress is a slow process, even NY can attest.
The renovation of this nation afflicted with limitation lies with the population. Rules and regulations are the personification of irritation without the proper connections. On that note, we follow others as patrons and aspiration to contribute to Haiti’s vaccination. All decision, question and observation has been tossed and turned before being a confirmation. There is no greater sensation than giving our country a better reputation.
In a nutshell, we came a long way and believe we are doing well. For my one cheesy sentence: to make an omelette, I believe you can tell. We are in the best positions to start making wells and remove this connotation of “Haiti equals hell”. Help rebuild our country back, be the change, it’s time to act.
On the other hand if the answer to that equation is making right impact, what is stopping you from #StandingWithEclat?
