I am deeply moved by the author's narration. It reminded my growing up in India. Although not similar to what Jean-Robert Cadet experienced in Haiti but the emotional trauma is very similar. Thanks to Jean-Robert for writing this wonderful book. I can now cope with my past and simply enjoy my current middle class environment.

I can not begin to imagine why anyone would treat another human being the way that woman treated that little boy. I think that this system is still going on in haiti and it needs to be stoped! . let's try and find a solution to this mistreatment.
