Everyday Acts of Solidarity and Mutual Support

What stands out for me are the everyday acts of solidarity and mutual support.  Support networks are crucial as in Haiti there is always a crisis but just the energy needed to live and work through the week is tremendous and sometimes overwhelming. The violence of poverty is overwhelming – we of the privileged speak about it, write about it, and stare at it through tinted or even open windows but really we don’t know.

Check out this interview with Nigerian writer Sokari Ekine who is currently living in Haiti.  We’re happy to have this interview as part of our #dearCaribbean blog carnival.
