    I can absolutely understand the frustration of the Haitian people. It seems that they suffer through an endless number of corrupt politicians who make promises they never keep and view their positions as nothing more than a way to enrich themselves, their families and friends. However, at some point all Haitians must realize that endless protests, rioting and destruction will get you nowhere and when the fires burn out and the dead are buried they still have to live there. The situation is only made worse when individuals, tourists, missionaries, and organizations no longer choose to come because of the violence. I believe that all Haitians must find ways to come together to work for the common good. People from all walks of life must be willing to put the collective good ahead of the individual. Asking only “what’s in it for me?” Will not solve the problem.
