It’s time to rebuild Haiti
:The desire to live and prosper is in us but we have to find it. One of the greatest tragedies in life is to die poor without realizing that we had millions of dollars at our disposal. It might be midnight and dark in our lives but we have to have the desire to believe that the sun will rise in the morning. There is a dark moment in each one of our lives. We must believe that the sun will rise after every dark moment. There can be no morning without darkness. The sun will always rise after the darkness. The Haitians who survived the quake will testify that the sun always rises even after the darkest night. U.S. President Obama reminded the folks that suffered in the Colorado’s tragedy that life goes on even in the darkest moment.
