I hope that faith can sometimes consist of finding nothing left to pray except to echo the words of the one I call savior, and loudly scream or softly whisper or pitifully wonder: "My God, my God, why have you forsaken them?"
Many Haitians worry that little will change in the coming years, that the promised billions will disappear into the pockets of the rich and powerful who want to keep things as they are. But this is also a last chance for Haiti.
Six months after the earthquake, the plan for a "New Future for Haiti" (a "Haitian-led" effort being funded under World Bank oversight, through a commission whose members include only seven Haitians) seems remote indeed.
If those who seek to develop a new Haiti are unwilling to confront certain aspects of our old society and culture, we will fail. There are institutions that exist in Haiti that we as Haitians cannot allow to persist.
