Haiti Remembered: A Personal Message from GFF President Kimberly Green
January 12, 2011
It has been one year since the earth shook, one year since the ground opened, one year since over a quarter million souls left this world in a flash seen and heard around the world. And it has been one year that we have mourned, remembered, wept and prayed… but in this one year, we, the world, have come together. We have marched, we have given from our wallets and our hearts, we have taken the time to teach and to learn, and most importantly, we… have become a "WE.". Together, on this day of remembrance, WE have come together, whether in town halls or universities, churches or living rooms, to honor those who perished, with praise and joy, and remember them with the love they left behind. WE gathered with candles and poems, songs and dance, to celebrate their lives, and to reinforce a new, collective commitment to see the unseen, hear the voiceless and embrace the suffering. Together, WE close this year of mourning with a new found commitment to work together in solidarity. WE ARE HAITI, and AYITI PA PERI.
