Today is the day the results for the next President of Haiti will be announced.
Many people assume that because Haiti is a third world country, they lack access to the technology we are so accustomed to in the U.S. and all over the rest of the world. Those assumptions are wrong. Technology has played a huge part in this election process. Along with messages being thrown across the radio and television airwaves, text messages have taken over telephones. Right now, text rumor has it that Madame Manigat won the election 51%.
IF this is the case, and IF these results are given tonight... I am thinking it is going to be deja vu of December.
This morning coming into work I already saw a lot of UN cars and trucks patrolling the city and main road. People that can afford it have been stocking up on goods... just in case. Most schools were closed, though we held classes this morning.
We will see what happens tonight, after dark. Keep Haiti in your thoughts and prayers.
I will update as soon as possible.
