if the average american citizen were forced to repay their individual debt, they would be looting and rioting also.

Do not be so smug. The average US citizen who thinks so highly of themselves have negative saving, foreclosures are on the rise, people can't make their payments.

Do not be so smug about the possibility of looting. Don't forget the great Depression, when your forbears stood in line for a morsel of bread.

Do not delude yourselves...

Yesterday was Haiti, today is Haiti and tomorrow will be Haiti. It NEVER changes becaus the people are not capable of anything more than acting like animals.
Take a look at the other sde of the island. They DID something with just a little help. Haiti has done NOTHING with millions of dollars of help.
Case closed.

Why do we care if haitians have to eat rats? It's not the job of the United States to constantly have to step in and help that miserable country....if the US really wanted to help out they would drop a couple of Oralloy thermonuclear warheads on Haiti and put it out of its misery

You are both two ignorants.

Why should I waist my time with you?

Help?

Haiti doesn't get help.

WE LEND money from the IMF and the World Bank to be paid back at a high interest.

NEO-colonialist economy.

The otherside?

The otherside has SOLD OUT: SOUL AND BODY.

When you idiots start talking do your homework, stop talking out of your asses.

WAIT FOR YOUR TURN, IT'S HERE ALREADY.

WE HAITIANS ARE USED TO HUNGER, YOU YOU ARE NOT.

Hundreds Turn Out for Unveiling of New Haitian Memorial Monument

Savannah now has a new monument to honor the Haitian volunteers who fought in the Revolutionary War. Hundreds gathered as the highly anticipated Haitian Memorial Monument was unveiled at Franklin Square today.

"It's exciting, I'm moved beyond control," said Haitian Guerline Daguisan.

Daguisan was one of the many Haitians present for this ceremony. She was born in Haiti and moved here 17 years ago. She says there was no way she was missing an event that honors her country.

"It means pride, like today to be a Haitian it means freedom. To be the person that God wanted me to be and today is a historical moment to be a Haitian where our forefathers had fought the fight for the freedom that we have today. It makes me proud," said Daguisan.

Members of the Haitian American Historical Society say that this Haitian Memorial Monument stands for the 575 free volunteer soldiers from Haiti, who fought in the Revolutionary War's Battle of Savannah in 1779.

"Well as you know we were the first Black colony to gain our independence. It's a hell of a job to fight for your country and for this city today, that means a lot for the Haitian community and a lot for the Savannah community," said Haitian American Historical Society member Patrick Valme.

And after nearly six years of the Haitian American Historical Society planning and raising money, this monument is finally here.

"It is huge, it's so huge. I'm glad they persevered in getting this made because that will bring more revenue to the city here and more Haitians in the area. And every time I come here I will remember what our forefathers did to bring our freedom," said Daguisan.

The Haitian Ambassador was in Savannah today for the unveiling. City officials say two more statues will be added to the monument by next year.
