Skipping Through: Les Cayes, July 17

When I was younger, news reports unfailingly called Haiti, "The poorest nation in the Western Hemisphere." Being Haitian-American, it's loathsome to hear my ancestral home as "poor";  it felt like an indictment and judgment on my heritage. The public imagination is blighted with depictions of privation and destitution, a nation of people who can't seem to ever have good things happen to them, yet, Haiti is replete with images of a hopeful future that is always ever present and skipping through.
