This is my life story, growing up as the son of a modest family in Haiti's countryside where I attended grade and medical school, and helped alleviate my compatriots’ suffering.  My public health education at the University of Miami (UM) inched me closer to my career goals:  I became health systems administrator in Haiti and in Florida, and a faculty member of UM medical school. The book describes my personal tragedies and professional struggles, and relates Haiti’s recent major sociopolitical events to the larger issues facing the country today.  It ends with advice for young readers grounded on my experience.
