I am embarrased as a Belizean to know that ignorant people like "Belizegirl" would give such comments about Americans in a time of despair for the people of my beloved country. I hope that those who have read "Belizegirl's" comments and gotten offended will not take it that ALL BELIZEANS feel the same way. We have to admit that IGNORANT people like "Belizegirl" exist ALL OVER THE WORLD and I apologize that she popped out of nowhere in the wrong place at the wrong time with such senseless comments. I have been reading these comments for the past few days and I was not going to step down to even put anything on the web but as I can see, horrible things are being said to each other and I really really don't want the rest of the world to think that all belizeans are like 'Belizegirl." All I want to say is that this is not necessary and that Belizeans are not the way people like "Belizeangirl" have made us look like. I want to thank all the people that had Belize, San Pedro and Caye Caulker in their thoughts and prayers. Believe me, I know that my Mother, sister and the rest of my family and friends in San Pedro have been and will always appreciate you having them in your thoughts and prayers. I am studying in the United States and if it wasn't for the 100% support of MY AMERICAN friends, I would have lost my mind by now not knowing of my family in San Pedro. I also know that my Parents' hearts are at ease knowing that I am in good hands of caring people.
Belize is a Treasure and I hope that all works out for those who had made previous plans to go visit. I apologize for all the horrible comments being said in a forum that was intended for others to find information on their loved ones. Please just remember that Belizeans are not what "Belizegirl" has made us look like.
Mami, Tracy, Daddy, Jeff and Francis, I miss you all and hope all is going well at home. I wish I was there to help and I hope I hear from you ASAP. This is your Olitch
Just so you know, thats the wacko that goes on the Belize Boards and rips equally on all races. One day he's Belizean and all Americans are scum, the next day he's American and all Belizeans are scum.
Ignore his bile, it stinks.
