Billions of dollars and many thousands of man-hours of some of the best minds have been expended on the problems in Haiti by the Members of United Nations.

On a day designated to celebrate the achievements and triumphs of African people everywhere, the Haitian Revolution, despite attempts to erase all traces of its significance from modern civilization, stands out like a pinnacle in a dream, a seminal moment in the wide swath of human history.

August 12, 2008 was the one-year anniversary of the disappearance of Lovinsky Pierre Antoine, one of Haiti's most respected human rights advocates.
