    As I understand these directions, you are to write about the Haitian earthquake from the perspective of the Haitians. Consider their history, economics, culture, etc.

    Start with a thesis statement and an outline of what you want to say. You may want to show the thesis and outline to your instructor to be sure you're on the right track.
