America's Historic Debt to Haiti

Greetings to all! I wanted to share this great article with you. America has a long history of failing Haiti. We owe them so much more than we have ever given. We owe the people support for their democracy, plain and simple. [quote] America's Historic Debt to Haiti By Robert Parry February 10, 2006 ...

Never give up, Leonel! They THINK they are God but they are not and they will overreach, or should I say keep overreaching, until people finally wake up and stop this madness. I feel frustrated and hopeless sometimes but then I think of the Haitian people who never seem to lose their hope and I have...

To Leonel: I have to admit, I do it on purpose! I guess as long as I am feeling mischievous, I'm alive! (Still, it's true so why not say it!)

My pleasure Guy! Your response is why I love you and admire you so much! Instead of taking what I say personally, you see the bigger picture and the truth of it. That is not easy to do. But you know that I am not including every privileged Haitian; I am talking about the majority. Enough to make you...

Aubelin Jolicoeur, a Study in Haitian Class Dynamics

I used to stay at the Oloffson in the early 80s. Of course I met Jolicoeur, or should I say he met me. He was my first and best teacher of Haitian class dynamics. In the beginning I was charmed, he "bought" me lunch (I use quotes because he never paid for anything at the Oloffson!). He held court at...

Obama, wherefore art thou, Obama?

This is a lesson to me not to revere politicians of any kind! I am very disappointed that only two Democrats on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee voted against recommending Rice to the Senate, Kerry and Boxer (bless her heart...Kerry can bless his own!!). Senator Obama voted for her and Feinste...

Hey Caroline!

Good to see you again and especially good to see you in WOH. Thanks for the heads up on Guy, NOW I remember who he is. I think he scared it right out of me!

Hi Marilyn! Thanks for the greeting, I am happy to be here among you. It is a blessing these days to be with people who share your beliefs and concerns.
