Haitian proverb

Translation: A river should not forget its source.

Meaning: Don’t ever forget where you come from/your roots.

Serena Williams Wins 2014 U.S. Open Title and 18th Grand Slam Title

Serena Williams beat Caroline Wozniacki, 6-3, 6-3, at the 2014 U.S. Open, her 3rd consecutive U.S. Open title and 18th Grand Slam Title. (Photographs from Nike, The Boston Globe and Fox.)

According to The Associated Press:

Williams equaled Chris Evert and Martina Navratilova with 18 major singles titles, the fourth-most in history. Williams also matched Evert’s total of six championships at the U.S. Open and became the first woman to win three in a row since Evert’s four-title run from 1975-78.

WINNING! Congratulations to Serena Williams!

Haitian Saying - “Roaches are never right when facing chickens.” Refers to the perception that while those in power are free to do whatever they want to the weak, when the weak try to stand up for themselves they never win, since those in power control the system. Can be used in a wide array of situations from speeches chastising situations of social injustice, to kids lamenting punishments by their parents, that they deem unfair.
