Haiti Marks 210 Years of Independence


“210 years after we took our independence, let’s continue the fight to put our country on the road to development,” Martelly said in a statement. “In union only will we meet the challenge.”

In a statement, United States Secretary of State John Kerry, a native of Massachusetts, said he held a “special appreciation for Haiti’s journey.”

“I was proud to introduce bipartisan legislation in the Senate to help Haiti rebuild and develop in a way that creates an opportunity to emerge better off and better prepared,” Kerry said. “And that’s why I worked closely with dozens of families in Massachusetts to expedite adoptions of Haitian orphans that had already been underway before the earthquake. As Secretary of State, I will continue to make Haiti a priority.” via Caribbean Journal
