"I am going to Haiti one day"✨
I affirmed this over 20 years ago. I didn't how I was going to get there. Didn't matter. I was going. I'm not Haitian but I've always felt drawn to and loved the culture. I grew up in good 'Ole Flatbush Brooklyn and immersed my Guyanese self in all the culture around me.
Haiti has a strong rich culture that fascinates me. The. First Black. Republic. ✨
✨22 years after my affirmation we had the opportunity to go on the #ubersocacruise . Imagine my surprise when I found out we were having #jouvert in....... Haiti!!!!!'😱😱🙌🏾❤️🇭🇹. I was so damn happy! I couldn't stop talking abt it!
I didn't think anything could top the beauty of seeing my people from all over the #diaspora jumping up, dancing and enjoying themselves as ONE until I see my eyes on Haiti. #Ayaiti 🖤. I was damn near in tears. We enjoyed ourselves and I even got in the water. All I kept saying was my people were in this water! They walked this land. They are still here. My people!! ✨ ✨My heart is so full and as I type this I feel the spirit of my ancestors moving through me. Words aren't enough to describe what I felt. ✨ ✨I'm going back to Haiti. My people. 🇭🇹 ✨S/N. While eating breakfast we saw these two men in the middle of the ocean in that small boat. We wondered where they were coming from and where they were going. One appears to be throwing water out the boat. Talk abt determination. Humbled the hell out of me. I sent them love and protection. ✨ Although I was glad to see Haiti I wasn't happy about the cruise line either leasing or owning (depends who you ask) the island. The people of the country don't have access unless they work there.
