Our friend Deisy Toussaint was there last Saturday in Dajabón, a border town in the Dominican Republic, to participate in a very important event, commemorating the 80th anniversary of the brutal massacre of 1937 that left thousands of Haitians slaughtered by Dominicans under the direct order from Dominican fascist dictator, Raphael Leonidas Trujillo. The event was an initiative coordinated by Dominican-American writer, Julia Alvarez, who flew from the United States for the occasion.

According to Deisy, the Mayor’s office of Dajabón, the Catholic Church, and countless of Dominicans and Haitians were at hands. The moment was sweet—a rare show of unity, showcasing the harmony that can coexist between the two peoples. For Deisy, whose is Haitian-Dominican, poet and novelist, this could not be more dazzling. Love should be the mantra that defines us, not hate, for hate only bears one trademark: destruction.
