Often times you find yourselves in compromising situations. You have knocked on so many doors, but there haven't be any positive response. You have written that exams over and over but you still haven't gotten that desired results.  You have been on all kinds of medications but your illness, still haven't shown any signs of improvement. You have taken your applications to almost all companies, industries among others but you still haven't gotten the response you want. You have been to that embassy uncountable times but your visa hasn't still been approved. That scholarship you've signed up several times hasn't still been successful.  Then you lose all hopes, you lose your faith in God. You begin to blame others, and draw wrong conclusions that God has neglected you. You get discouraged and give up.  You can relate to the story of Joseph, he was disliked by his own brothers, that they even planned of murdering him. He was later sold as a slave to…

Former Haitian President Rene Preval has died at the age of 74.

Rene was the first leader in Haiti's history to win a democratic election, serve a full term and peacefully hand power to a successor,, he died on Friday, February 3. 20017 after falling unconscious at his home. The cause of death for the two-time president was not made public. His sister, Marie-Claude Calvin, said an autopsy would determine the cause. 
Preval was a central figure in Haitian politics from the early nineties through to his second presidency.

His legacy will always be tied to the 2010 earthquake that destroyed much of the capital, Port-au-Prince, killing more than 200,000 people and bringing the presidential palace crumbling to the ground.Haiti has been politically turbulent for much of its history since winning independence from France in 1804.
