The Oldest Woman in the World and Other Stories from Haiti

I spent two years (1984-86) as the Coast Guard Attache to the U. S. Embassy in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Looking back all these years later, I realize that those two years were the the most intense, most moving, most heart-wrenching years of my life.

I was your typical middle-class white American when I arrived in Haiti--I'd grown up in the comfortable suburbs of the San Francisco Peninsula. I'd attended private schools, universities, and become a Coast Guard aviator. It was an easy, privileged life. Then I arrived in Haiti. Poverty and despair were everywhere. Garbage littered the streets; sewage ran in the gutters; naked children stood along the roads, their bloated bellies and reddish hair announcing their malnourishment; the corrupt government, led by Baby Doc Duvalier, stole money from the peasants, siphoned U. S. aid money into Swiss accounts, and lived a life of decadence made all the more obscene by its blatant disregard for the plight of the people who made it possible. The country was a living nightmare . . . only 600 miles from our shore, near enough to tempt thousands of desperate boat people to risk their lives trying to reach there. Thousands died in the attempt. Haiti was (and still is) a horror story.

Now, nearly thirty years later, Haiti is in even worse shape, and I'm still unable to fully explain how deeply my short stay there affected me. These few stories are my attempt to give you some idea of what it was like to live in the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. Somewhere deep inside, a part of me is Haitian. Perhaps after reading these stories, you'll have a sense of what that means.

God's Cadillac

Corbin Lewars was a single mom of two young children and ran her own editing business. This meant all day and night, she told people what to do. She preferred to call it "helping." Her therapist disagreed and suggested Corbin attend a 12-step program for people with control issues. God seemed to be the man of the hour at the meetings, and the goal seemed to be to hand things over to him. This troubled agnostic Corbin. She wasn't sure she believed in God and if and when she ever thought about him, she viewed him as a man driving around in a Cadillac talking on his IPhone. She surely wasn't going to hand her life over to that guy.

But a spiritual belief seemed to be the pathway to peace, so she started thinking more about the man upstairs. She began speaking to Him and believed they were forming a budding friendship, or even better, that she was on the path to enlightenment. Unfortunately, she was on the path to breast cancer.

"I didn't see that one coming," she told everyone and anyone. Organic eating, exercising every day, newly god talking forty-three year old women didn't get stage three breast cancer, right? Wrong. Thinking she was in charge (and bossing people around) was abandoned as she was forced to trust friends, acquaintances and doctors to help her through treatment. And in trusting others, she started to see what a relief it was to not be in charge. By letting others love and care for her, she learned Letting Go and Letting God wasn't as difficult or absurd as it sounded.
