Nice to see Ann Pale

Though I have been swearing to get off Haitian forum, I am glad to see some posts on windows. It's very different from FB. We have to go from words to Actions. I am tired of all the talk with no action.

Happy Birthday

I think I have been with windows from day one. If you go back two years ago, you'll see my reflections regarding 10 years of writing in Haitian forum. Like you said Guy with other social networks and also yahoogroups, contributions have been slow. I am also discouraged when trying to come up to the ...

Manmy Djo, l'epouse de Mr. Joseph Augustin est partie

Le centre National de l'Apostolat a Brooklyn vient de circuler ces nouvelles. Pour les membres du forum vivant a Montreal, vous n'avez pas de renseignements pour les funerailles et autres. Jaf, ou pa konnen anyen. Anne Marie Augustin (la femme de Papy Djo) est retournée à la maison du Père. Le centr...

A Civic/Faith Seminar

http://www.boston.com/yourtown/news/malden/2009/12/faithbased_civic_education_sem.html This idea came out of too much video, too many radio programs, and little interest in the Arts, education and seminars in the Athens of America.

Working together

Senou, I like your ideas. But it is very hard. I notice in the Haitian community, the adage "Nul n'est prophete dans son pays" is more applicable. You refer to Kennedy. But there were the astronauts he could call upon. In the Haitian community if you think of an idea, my experience is you have to do...

Obama's Dreams to my Father

I don't know where the following comments fit in the abortion debate. But I simply want to say that based on reading President-Elect Obama's best seller, I found out that his organizing started in the Catholic Church in Chicago. In "Dreams from my father" one will see a lot of issues that are being ...

Je ne peux pas croire que j'ai passé 10 ans à ecrire dans Windows. Pendant que j'observe les débats et les échanges sur le futur d'Haiti dans un yahoogroup haitien...

Goat sacrifice in Nepal

There is a difference how animal sacrifice is presented in Nepal where Hinduism is practiced in contrast to Haiti. If a similar sacrifice were to be done in Haiti's airport, it probably would have been seen as a satanic manifestion. Haitians themselves would have been the first ones to give a negati...
