James St Furcy's comment on "The happiest Haitian on the planet earth"
I am an older and gray man. I think its refreshing to read an article that
started on a positive note. Clearly credit must be given where credit is due.
You made a good point when you noted the news about Haiti is usually somber
Those news reports send a negatuve signal to the listeners.

However I take
exception when you minimize the hard work of those older people who probably
pay for your education, pay for your first computer, etc. There is no reason to
snap at older people for their views on Haiti.

Their negative views are not a
figment of their imagination.

Insecurity is real in Haiti and there are many complex
reasons for it. Haiti has reached rock bottom and the only way now is up. While
I congratulate Mr Andresol and president Preval for a good job, there is still a lot
to be done before the people in the Diaspora will have confidence in Haiti and
begin to invest in the country.Part of the problem the society is having today is
the lack of respect on the part of the folks.

The last thing we need is a
generation gap to further fragment the already splintered Haitian community.

We need to encourage each other rather than create artificial division between
the young and the old. We need every segment of our society to work together
for a better future for all.
Thank you for your time
