Haitians have an old Creole proverb: Deye mon, gen Cape Town Metro Map mon, meaning beyond the mountains, more mountains. Citizens of few countries in the world, Cape Town Metro Map and certainly none in the Western Hemisphere, have had more mountains to climb than have the Haitians. Some of these hardships have been cruelly imposed by natural forces such as killer hurricanes and earthquakes. Sadly, many other obstacles that appear insurmountable are self-inflicted. Hopelessly ineffective and corrupt government leaders, for example, are a primary cause of the country’s chronic grinding poverty. Poverty, in turn, is a primary factor in many of Haiti’s seemingly endless list of other problems.
