We know that our future, as a community or a country, lies in our children. They are our future leaders, professionals, and entrepreneurs. Yesterday, we saw children who are sponsored through World Vision. We saw them perform music, dance and poetry readings, and saw painting they had produced. As wonderful as they were, we something something far more important. We saw children who are educated, confident, and articulate. We saw children who are happy and hopeful.
I believe these children are the future of Haiti. Based on what we saw yesterday, the future of Haiti is in very good hands indeed. When I see the work that has been done here, work supported by Canadians through World Vision Canada, it makes me very proud to be Canadian.
