From: Patti Kolbjornsen
Hello. I just wanted to thank you for such a great blog. My father is from Haiti and my mother from Mexico. They met in Los Angeles circa 1972 (go figure?!) I spent many a summer in Haiti and have fond memories of trips to Les Cayes and the such.
I have been there recently and the memories of my childhood are so very different than the country I see now. I appreciate conscious Haitian Americans who put forth the effort to discuss and comment on the status of our dear "Haiti Cherie". Thank you for making me proud to be a Haitian woman.
