TRIBUTES

As a member of the International Human Outreach Ministries and a Haitian by birth, I feel great pride to have been involved from the beginning in the preparation of the Interfaith Memorial Service for Haiti. The profound interest demonstrated by all of those who comprised the Task Force in bringing their valuable suggestions and encouragements was very uplifting. All this was done in addition to investing their precious time to make this event a  real success.

 

Thank you to all elected officials, religious and community leaders not only for your input but also your time and the  great interest shown in the preparation of this memorial service whose primary purpose is to send a message of hope and support to the still grieving families for the loss of their love ones on January 12, 2010 by the devastating earthquake. I need to address a very special thanks to the American people whose great generosity and spontaneous support to our Haitian brothers in time of distress have been so remarkable.  This has been an unforgettable experience.

 

My wish is that this memorial service be an opportunity for all of us, no matter where we come from, no matter what our position is in life, to remember the fragility of human beings on this earth, and how in a fraction of minute the whole word might collapse on us. Let’s draw from this Interfaith Memorial Service a message of love for one another without regard to color, creeds or status, and commit ourselves to always be readily available to help our fellow human being in difficulty, anywhere, anytime. 

 

To all those who come to join us in this celebration, we say thank you. To the people of Haiti, to the suffering families, we say do not despair, you are not alone. The whole world shares your grief and is ready to help. Haiti will rise again more beautiful and stronger!
