You made me cry !!!!

Yes the both of you brought tears to my eyes today,even tough I’m a 45 year old man who doesn’t tear up easily.I myself made my voyage now almost 20 years ago by plane I can still relate to Paulette’s experience,recognize the fear of the unknown but also felt her gratitude for a renewed hope of the future. The two of you are amazing and I am so glad I listened.

I love this

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. This is for the culture for sure. In the first 10 minuets of episode 1 I began to be filled with emotion. I felt so proud. I have a feeling of triumph, because I know that the Haitian people are intrinsically resilient. Your mother’s story is our story. Bigs thanks to you Wilkin and to Paulette for being modern day griots for our people.
