Hi Jacques, Khalil Gibran's The Prophet is one of my favorite books.

Anyway, yes we can help our country, but as I've already said in many discussions on this blog, great and successful nations are built by great and successful leaders.

What we do as individuals is all well and good, but Haiti need s national leadership to mobilize and guide its citizens.

If you want to quickly understand the impact of national leaders, just look at the difference between the Clinton years and the Bush years in power.

They both had the exact same amount of time to make a difference in America, but that is the only thing they have in common.

During the Clinton years, the American economy was the strongest in the world.

Internationally, Americans were loved or respected, and at the national level ethnic hostility was at its lowest.

Using the same amount of time, Bush started a war on two fronts that killed nearly three thousand of the nation's young people, he has bankrupted the national coffers, the value of the American dollar is rapidly reaching an irreversible low, Americans are now hated and openly disrespected in most parts of the world, the average American cannot pay their basic monthly bills, many are loosing their homes, and racial tension is at an all time high--particularly in lower income sectors.

The character and works of a country's leader can either destroy or raise a nation, regardless of individual efforts by citizens.
