We are assembled today in the memory of the women and men that disappeared like lightening under the earthquake on January 12, 2010.

Today marks two years since the earthquake occurred, resulting in mourning, much suffering, and pain in the hearts of all Haitians. We lost mothers, children, family, godparents, comrades, friends, people with whom we crossed paths in our daily activities. We not only lost individuals, but buildings that shared our history. We lost, collectively, many historic monuments and pieces of our heritage – schools, cathedrals, the national palace, the courthouse, the legislature
