|And if we are the kind of person with experience enough to realize how much we benefit, we honestly don’t know what to do about it. We know we can’t change the world. We live in a system of injustice and the only thing we can do is make small choices to begin to turn the tide.
So here we stand. We are a tiny part- but a flicker of hope for a few in Haiti, trying not to be snuffed out by the economic setbacks put in motion by the virus. We work to provide jobs, assistance, education, upward mobility, and hope for those in our sphere of influence in Haiti. We battle against the scars of abuse, colonialism, slavery, poverty, and racism that has ravaged a country. I don’t want to just be a poster board at a rally or remain a Facebook soapbox sermon with a viral following about injustice. I want to get to the real work of putting my convictions into action and creating sustainable, permanent change in the world.
