November 26, 2010: When we met Echzechiel Guerrieur was sitting on a hill in Nazone, looking out at the ruins of his neighborhood. He is devastated by the instability and loss his family has suffered in the months since the earthquake. The future in Haiti would be less bleak to him if a strong leader like Gandhi could emerge in Haiti. Gandhi “showed everyone their importance. He showed them themselves.”

26 Novembre, 2010: Quand nous avons rencontré Echzechiel Guerrieur, il était assis sur une colline dans Nazone, en train de regarder les ruines de son ancien quartier. Il est dévastée par l’instabilité et les pertes sa famille souffre pendant les mois depuis le tremblement de terre. L’avenir en Haïti serait moins sombre pour lui, si un leader fort, comme Gandhi pourrait émerger en Haïti. Gandhi a montré chacun leur importance. Il les a montré eux- même.”
