Hello Mr. President

Gabner - April 12 2011, 12:50 PM

I'm a Haitian professional residing in the U.S. with 12 years of experience in Information Technology.

Like many fellow Haitians living abroad, it is my desire to return.

I do not want to return home simply for the sake of returning home and for a better cost of living.

My earnest desire to return home is due to my aspiration to invest my knowledge in my country.

Thereby, I presently returned to school in pursuit of a bachelor's degree in Database Administration because I would like to instruct in a University in Haiti.

I think along with health and security, education is the key to prosperity of a nation.

It aches my heart to see that Haitians have to go overseas, especially to D.R. to obtain an education beyond high school.

As you said in your interview conducted by the Miami Herald, we need to cease being beggars.

I think until we demonstrate to the outside world that we are taking matters in our hands to better ourselves and our country, the lack of respect and trust that they've always exhibited toward us will always be prevalent.

We know you have a hefty task ahead of you, but know that you're not alone.

We support you, and stand by you for a better Haiti and a better life for young Haitians.

May God bless you, and may God bless the REPUBLIC OF HAITI.
