Meet Our 2014 Unsung Hero Rich Canci

The Barbara Harmon Unsung Hero Award was founded in memory of an incredible woman who never received nor wanted any credit for her countless hours of community service, charity contributions and volunteerism.

Carmelina performs at St. John’s University

March 20, 2014 Growing up in the inner city comes with some advantages and disadvantages. There are tons of places to visit and so much to do. New York City is the city that never sleeps.  However, there was always something inside of me that wanted to explore more; become more. I knew that my ticket to becoming something more would be getting an education.  I love my parents and sometimes we butted heads, but one thing they wanted was their [...]

The Haiti Blogs: My Journey of Hope and Rediscovery – Pt 11 “Afterthoughts”

There are still things I will need to get off Kishner’s camera when we get back to New York, but I have almost all our material. The footage we took is [...]

The Haiti Blogs: My Journey of Hope and Rediscovery – Pt 9 “Let’s Take The Long Way Home…”

By Hal Eisenberg February 21, 2014 I awoke prior to sunrise this morning with an excitement that was two fold. Almost as if I have split personality, the town bell symbolized it was time to begin our long journey home, but my enthusiasm wanted me to run up the hill to the school that impacted my life so deeply just a day earlier. I wanted a taste of Paradis Des Indianes one more time, as I knew I would be back, [...]

The Haiti Blogs: My Journey of Hope and Rediscovery – Pt 8 “The Universe Unfolds As It Wants”

By Hal Eisenberg February 20, 2014 I awoke this morning with some apprehension and anxiety about today’s events. I go to sleep tonight a changed man, astounded by what a difference one day can make in someone’s life. Today is one of those quintessential days that you will sit back and reflect on, realizing you are not in control, but it all of a sudden makes sense. It is in that thought and realization alone that fills my existence with [...]
