A Sad Mystery

30 May

While walking along an old Bahamian road I happened upon a little old cemetery with a very sad memorial. It commemorates the death at sea of 21 Haitians. I did a search online and the only reference I could find was one article for the memorial and nothing more. Odd. I shall continue my search. There is a story here that isn’t getting its due.

    See “The Haitian Boat People–No Less a Tragedy”, by Howard Kleinberg, Miami News, August 15th, 1979. Their sailboat capsized, July 19, 1978 on it’s way to Miami (from Freeport, apparently). Inspiring what everyday people will do for a chance at a normal life and despicable how others take advantage of their hope (and desperation).
