Haiti - Mother's Day : Vibrant tribute from Prime Minister to all Haitian mothers
Message from acting Prime Minister Lapin :
"Mother's Day is a special time when women in general and moms in particular get all the attention.
Mankind celebrates mothers for their love, kindness, courage and the many sacrifices they make for the happiness of their children and their families.
They are honored because the mother is considered both an educator, a counselor, a manager, a protector of her children. The mother is also considered as the pillar of the family, the first social cell that feeds a nation.
Because I recognize these strong values that underpin the great importance of the mother, I would like to take this pleasant opportunity to pay tribute to all the mothers of Haiti and especially to tell them how much I am sensitive to the remarkable work they do every day.
These brave Haitian moms who fight most often with very little means to support their families are examples and models for our girls.
I want to wish them a beautiful Mother's Day and I hope they will be surrounded by love by their families.
I am aware of the great suffering that hinders hope because of the difficult situation that is the reality of Haiti. And it is aware of this reality, with a special thought for Haitian mothers, that I am remain available for Parliament.
I know that Haitians and Haitians expect a lot and I especially know that it is my duty to rise to the height of their requirement.
If the Parliamentarians were to decide, I would be proud to contribute to better conditions for a celebration that is the size of the Haitian mother.
To all the mothers of Haiti, I renew my respects and my affections.
Happy Mother's Day !"
