Awesome Poem. Breath Taken!

Clivens Laguerre - March 20 2007, 4:38 PM

wow!, I am stunned and shivering.

Very well put together poem.
I am also Haitian,
Came to America when I was young.

I get the same horrible response when people learn that I am Haitian.

It is very nerve wrecking and the stereotypes are horrible.

We really need to have a lot of young Haitian reading words like these.

To give them a sense of pride and dignity.

To know that they have foundation and are deep rooted.

Founded on Strength and Courage.

My world is better now that I have read your great words.

Thanks
