Cary Goulston, a local Clearwater businessman who has been working on helping this island for almost two years, spoke about his trip upon his return. ”Both countries are quite different,” Goulston said. “The Dominican Republic is a little more advanced. But the results were equally astounding. The people really want help with their lives and love this technology. I am amazed at how much they reach for it, and how much they need and want help.
“We live in a society that pretends that everything is okay . People have a façade that life is going fine when behind closed doors they are very unhappy people who don’t know what their future holds. I find that people really have to know that they need help before they can start looking or seeking answers and help.
“People who think they already have all the answers to life, unwanted emotions, unwanted feelings, broken relationships, losses and death, do not try to find answers and thus, their difficulties never get solved. They stick with the same troubles year after year after year.
“ So I find that people in the less middle class societies who are less reliant on material possessions, are more interested in self help and helping others. Drugs and TV cover up that something is wrong and people have to climb out of the pretense to start getting help. And believe me, we all need help.
“People want to be better and do better so they can attain their goals and have a better life. We will supply that demand. No matter what it takes.”
