(HAU) said in a so-called acceptance speech "I'm proud of my son Fransky, he's a role model, and will continue to be so; he will continue all of my great work after I either become a person of pensionable age or, unfortunately, permanently depart this world, that is die, to be simplistic."

Of cardinal importance: A piece of advice for HAU - "Man is born into trouble, as the sparks fly upward," conclude many philosophers. Still, a not-for-profit group, whose mission is to help promote the Haitian culture, for example, and popular among Haitians, Haitian-Americans and many others, categorically rejects the idea as the one of honoring a man (public figure), whose son was recently incarcerated for trafficking in narcotics (they sustain a self-perpetuating culture of extreme violence, according to results of research conducted by well respected social scientists), but not if he first publicly refers, with a voice of trueness, to the legal problems of his male progeny, in an attempt to discourage other young men from even expressing interest in navigating in the world of criminality, from succumbing to the temptation of journeying into the world of criminality. So, too, it is an occasion to convey the same salutary advice to many others. Otherwise, such an organization is subject itself to endure a good deal of ridicule, not committed to effectively function, ultimately permitting the ritual of organizations 'morning' to resume.
