First of all I would like to thank Mr Woody for this interesting topic and experience that you share with us.Some of us
we like bragging about how poor we are, we can not eat, our family are dying over there, and they say oh sorry, and give us couple quarters.

Really Haitians, this is what we are?we can do better that. If the media try to paint us negatively, it is our job to inform foreigners about Haiti.Last year, starting in November, at our Church they had chosen
a couple to come in front and read a verse with a candle, they selected us, one guy, he was visitor, said where are you from we proudly said Haiti, he replied oh I thought they said Haitian people can't read and write, it is not joke many foreigners have no clue about Haiti.Its our job to tell them our country is not all about disease, poverty,killing, Port Au prince that's all they know. Since I'm here I read only one positive news from the foreign media about our country.''THEY FIND GOLD IN HAITI''.MALE PAPA
