Keep Haiti in our minds, not just our hearts (video)

Post asserts that though it is crucial that we do all we can to help our Haitian family, it is also important to keep Haiti in mind after the rebuilding is done. As we reconstruct Haiti, we should also look at reconstructing our policies related to Haiti and other impoverished nations, particularly on the African continent. 2 black nations have become household names in the last month because of terrorism and a natural disaster. We should use these events to become more knowledgeable of issues such as discrimination between Haitians living in Florida vs. Cubans. If we don’t become more knowledgeable of issues such as these, or the real reasons for Haiti’s level of destitution (including corrupt leaders), we will just be waiting to give money to the next cause that may have been preventable on the level we’re seeing.
