Haiti is a well-known country for having the worst natural disasters and other bad mishaps. Many people have been hurt, killed, or died in ways never thought possible. All that is heard from this country is always something bad. Not yet have I heard of something good from its people. Those that live in Haiti live in fear, depression, and some even go suicidal. Is Haiti really that bad! People make it seem as though they were describing “Hell” which is not a good place for anyone. From my experience I have come up with the conclusion that Haiti is poor today because of lack of motivation.
Not many people might agree with me, but the truth will set you free. Back when I was a child, I went maybe four times a year to this what they used to call “land of high mountains” country. I would go to visit my grandfather. My grandfather, you could say was a rich man. Not by wealth as you might think, but if he want to be rich he could. Anyways what I meant was that he owned many stocks on the farm. Shop owners, big food companies, and restaurant managers would come and buy from my granddad as if he was a factory. There were big hefty cows, dam goats (mother goats) and their kids (young goats), horses, pigs, chicken, and guard dogs. You name it he had it. When I look at him he would remind me of a typical farmer in a movie. I used to eat fresh off the farm, eggs from the chicken cope, milk from the cows otters, orange juice from the tree right in front of the window pane. I can still remember it as if it was yesterday. He taught many things. As a farmer he taught me how to treat infertile soil. Even though, this might sound atrocious, but it worked. The first thing I did was dig a small hole and put cow manure in the soil. I left it for at least a day or two. Then took the cow and plowed the soil. After I finished plowing it I took some seeds and planted them on the same soil. Even though, I did not see anything yet, I kept watering the plant with frequency. Sooner than expected, the plants had started sprouting.
You might ask what all of this has to do with the topic. During my research on this country I’ve found some good things. Back then, Haiti was known as the “land of high mountains.” Could you imagine that! Back then, Haiti was not the same Haiti we know now. Back then, there were fertile lands and good soil. When they did not have good soil or the land was infertile they would work into getting the land fertile. I am not going to lie, there are some soils that try to be fertile, but with patience those soils will make the plants grow.
Today these soils and lands have been deforested to the point that the soil cannot even recover its nutrients. Hurricanes, floods, droughts, and other natural disasters have stripped some parts of “mother earth” to not bare fruits. Because of this many people try to find jobs to be able to feed their families. Others have no idea what to do to bring food to the table, so they face starvation.
Economy, I believe was...
