Trauma Writing: Migrants tell their story of survival, grief, misery, loss, and hope in ‘Super Survivors: Citizens of the World…’ book

The American Dream can be found on the other side of the border. Haitian migrants thank Mexicans, specially Tijuanenses for making them realize that the American dream can be found in Mexico through hard work and open doors. That’s what two Haitian writers want to tell the rest of the world in their new paperback published by BorderlandPress and Amazon.

In this book, ‘Super Survivors: Citizens of the World and Planet Earth – Super Sobrevivientes: Ciudadanos del Mundo y del Planeta Tierra,’ authors and travel writers JC Doyle and Joseph C. narrate the stories of the migrants. These are stories about the resilience of the human body to bear witness to all kinds of trauma along the journey. The migrants quickly realized that once they left their home and their community, they were open to the world. They would be exposed to bandits, thieves, and authorities who added roadblocks to their trek. They would walk days and nights, in the rainy and sunny temperatures, cross over rivers, lakes, and difficult mountains where wild animals and gangs were ready to attack them.

Way before the January 12, 2010 earthquake in Haiti, I had been working on a textbook I could use to teach Creole to my 3 kids.  Then, the quake occurred.  I ended up using it to teach Haitian culture and languages to other people who wanted to travel and visit Haiti.

Lili, Lala, and Lila Are Looking for a Servant Girl Named Tifani Restavèk After the 2010 Quake

 

Here is the paperback version of ‘Lili, Lala, and Lila Are Looking for …Tifani R.’

Here is the eBook/PDF version of ‘Lili, Lala, and Lila are Looking for…Tifani R…’

 You can buy ‘Lili, Lala, and Lila are looking for Tifany after the Quake’ on Amazon.com

 

Three adventurous and well-off Haitian girls, Lili, Lala, and Lila set out to rescue a servant girl named Tifani Restavèk from a mean neighbor family who mistreats her and makes her do all kinds of forced labor while their own children, especially KansonFè IronPants, tease her while watching her work her heart out in the stifling Caribbean sun.

These three girls go to private catholic schools in Port-au-Prince. Way before the quake that hit Haiti, the three girls devise a plan to start reading stories to Tifani while she stands by the fence. They want to teach her to read and write.

In general, Restavèks (servant boys and girls whose parents cannot take care of them and were economically forced to let them go live with well-off city dwellers) do not expect to be treated well and go to school. Will these girls ever even get close to Tifani to tell her about their rescue plans? Will Tifani ever know an easy life? Did she survive the quake and its aftershocks?  A miracle would have to happen first.

****Above is the picture of one of the three girls looking for Tifani R.****
