    One of the more common things you’ll hear Hatians say is “The world hates Haiti”. The trick is not to insert politics or to moralize but to get the feel of it in fiction and leave it open to the reader’s interpretation.

    My favorite stat is that 98% of Hatians absolutely,unquestionably believe in sorcery, magic and or Voodoo.

    Underlining the speed of change in the publishing industry, Amazon said that two years after introducing the Kindle, customers are now buying more ebooks than all hardcovers and paperbacks combined. According to unaudited figures released by the company on Monday, since the start of 2012, for every 100 hardback and paperback book sold on its site, customers downloaded 114 ebooks. Amazon said the figures included sales of printed books which did not have Kindle editions, but excluded free ebooks.

    Tara,Disclaimer: Any views or opinions prnetseed in this email are solely those of the author and do not represent those of the Livesay familyFor what it is worth, unless people have been in the developing world, they have not the slightest clue what they are talking about. The hiring domestic help is very common in the developing world to support the local economy, and if this person had been in a country where the average person makes less than $50/month (I’ve never been to Haiti, but that’s about what is was for where I was in India, Ecuador, Guatemala and after all Haiti is THE POOREST COUNTRY IN THE WESTERN HEMISPHERE!!) they would understand that not only is it necessary (no glass, no electricity, dust everywhere, etc) but it is both socially and culturally EXPECTED! And for you not doing anything, which really got me going, have they ever tried to raise children and homeschool them in the developing world?!!!! Do they know how long it takes to prepare food, clean, wash?!! I’m guessing not because as you know it takes about 10 TEN TIMES LONGER than the USA! As far as I am concerned YOU ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT PERSON THERE because you are building a legacy in your family. I’m not surprised you are getting flak from your blog. It is the rawness that makes it so great. People need to know how hard it is to be a missionary in the developing world, and give you extra support for doing it. Jeesch, only the Christian Army shoots its wounded.Keep it up. You’re there, she is not.Steamed, very worked up, and thinking with all capital letters and many, many, exclamation points,James
