I want to take my country to a final run at glory, so Haitian-born stars can pe proud of it, so Haitian-born high achievers around the world can be proud of it, so black people stop wishing it wasn't there stigmatizing the whole race as a pariah nation, so my fellow average Haitians can finally have more than enough at home, after 200 years of misery, and can start acting truly as the co-masters of the common domain and of the common motherland that they are and start enjoying the country, enjoying a quality of life in elevation, enjoying the miracle of the modern times, Haiti finding again its past splendor.
Bring it on that challenge of nation-building and let me show you there is no task to heavy for the true patriot, for the truly Haitian-at-heart.
It is high time that we try something else, something authentically new, after we have tried at length wholesale despair, misery, negative growth and dysfunctionality. It is high time we give the builders, the shakers, the movers, a chance.
We have tried destruction enough. Let's try construction.
I am ready to lead, if even one Haitian is ready to follow. The others will jump on the bandwagon along the way.
I am ready to lead like a soldier who has heard a clarion call.
It is high time for my country to become that gigantic worksite, that gigantic "chantier", that other Haiti promised to us by all the political upheavals since 1806, that "Haiti.2".
I am ready to show my generation how to answer the call of history that beckons us, for all our personal academic and financial achievements, to dare tackle collectively the greatest challenge of all, nation-building, which surely would turn us into the greatest generation of Haitians since the first generation of 1803 that made 1804.
