What is happening in Haiti 2021 (or rather, what was happening in the last 48 hours) should be your next action you do during this week. Just because it feels like it’s happening now doesn’t mean it has to stay the same. Don’t waste your time or your money by going down the path of being stressed and worried. Instead, look at the positives. Think about the people you will meet in this year and the people you will meet in the future.
The earthquake in Haiti just happened so I wouldnt count it as a good thing, but its not something you want to see happen on a daily basis. If you were a fan of ‘Game of Thrones’, you would know that there is a prophecy that tells the characters of the show have to die in the end. The only people we dont know yet are the ‘witches’ of the village.
It’s a good thing we’re looking at positives, because that’s what we usually do in a disaster. It’s a good thing that the earthquake did not happen every day. When disaster strikes, you just look for the positives because they keep people in a good mood.
The earthquake in Haiti struck on March 12th, and it was the worst natural disaster that has hit the country in quite awhile. More than 3,500 people have been killed and 1,300 more are missing. It’s estimated that over 300,000 people have been left homeless, and another 700,000 people are homeless or displaced. The U.N. has been working on the task of rebuilding Haiti, but they’re going to need more money than we have to put towards it.
This has not been a situation that the world has been in for quite some time. The first world war was over by the end of June, 1918. In the 60s, the Cold War took over and in the 70s, the Vietnam War had begun. Then the Gulf war, which took place from 1991 to 2003, saw over a million people die. In the 80s, the AIDS crisis hit, and in the 90s, the Columbine shootings took place.
When asked why the Haitian government was so far behind, President Michel Martelly said it was because the earthquake had taken a few years to happen, and most of the funding was already in place when the quake hit.
Haitians might say, “that was the earthquake’s fault,” but Haitians don’t think the earthquake did enough damage to warrant the government’s help. It was during the 20th century only after the earthquake that Haitians started to be aware of their own history.
There has been a lot of debate around the Haiti earthquake, so we decided to have a little conversation about history and politics. We took some of our research from the first half of the 20th century (when Haiti was still a independent country) and turned it into a game of “What would happen if I told you that in the year 2027, I have this superpower, and it’s awesome?”.
The game is the best of both worlds. In the game, we are playing a history game on the island of Haiti. The game has a very real history and you can see it in your own life. So you can see how it would have felt to be an inhabitant of the 20th century. We also create a bunch of other fictional characters that are in the history that we’re playing.
So far we’re up to 9 characters. The game ends on a cliffhanger, and we have the power to move on to the next character. But as we see through the game, the story does not end there. We can get to the next story by moving on to the next island. But what could it mean for the story if we never go back? There’s a big question mark at the end of the game.
