Cherish our Women!

Today is International Women’s Day. I’m sure many of you are already aware of it. I just want to share it with you in case you forgot. I believe our women deserve the best recognition. They are hard workers, loving wives and mothers, humble and generous in every way shape or form. I wonder how a womanless world would look like. It would certainly not be joyous and definitively not productive. I know I would be the saddest prisoner in a universe without women.

A woman is always at the center of my every happy moment. At home, I have a lovely woman who is pivotal to getting everything done.  At work, I’m framed by impeccable individuals who are women—the platform from which education is built. But above all, I have my mother whose love for me is unconditional and priceless, and from whom my life began years ago in a dreaded, rainy night. I’m blessed to still be able to share with her a moment of laughter, a sincere interval of lovingly counseling, and some tender instances of savoring our tasty Creole cuisine.

Yet, despite our woman’s indispensable presence, her cosmopolitism, her boundless beauty, her unequivocal bravery in the trenches of warfare, and her resilience to fight against insurmountable odds to bring food to the table, the struggle for gender equality seems an everlasting protracted one. From Eastern Ukraine to Africa (North and South), to Latin America and the Caribbean, especially in Haiti and in the Dominican Republic where Haitian women are being reduced to being the most wretched of the land, women have yet to enjoy their well-deserved recognition. Let’s join our voices to speak on behalf of our deprived women! It is unfortunate that even in industrial societies like that of the United States, women continue to receive unequal treatments—receiving lower wages for performing the same job as men, being the victims of chauvinistic attitudes by men etc…

But today is your day, my lovely women. I love you from deepest end of my heart!
