Haiti bids farewell to victims of ‘national tragedy’ | The Miami Herald

“Today is sad,” she said. “I feel so bad because she was so young.”

Donnassaint said Bureau was attending the Carnival with her mother but later went off with friends to follow the floats.

“Her mom can’t even talk,” she said.

Like many Haitians who were moved by the tragedy, Mucanor Joseph, 28, said he was still in disbelief.

“I don’t think anyone thought something bad like this could have happened,” Joseph said. “We have to accept what has happened, but it can also serve as a lesson, too.”

Fenix Eugene, who also lost a cousin, 28-year-old Louis Rene, in the tragedy, said it is still hard to grasp.

“It’s a huge hit that we have taken,” he said. “Maybe if he was sick, we could understand his death. But he was dancing, enjoying Carnival.” via | The Miami Herald
