Lyrica, Cymbalta, and Neurontin, and are

Clearly hoping not to be outdone, Caribbean
American elected officials, among
others, have ensured that their voices
and actions are heard and seen, as celebrations
commemorating National Caribbean
American Heritage Month draw
to a close.
“Our Caribbean communities provide
rich heritage and cultural diversity,”
Assemblywoman Rodneyse Bichotte Hermelyn,
chair of the Brooklyn Democratic
Party, told Caribbean Life on Monday.
“Throughout this month, our nation celebrates
Caribbean-Americans for their
overwhelming contributions to American
“Many Caribbeans leave their native
countries and come to America in search
of a better life,” added the daughter of Haitian
immigrants. “While in America, they
study to become our teachers, doctors,
engineers, lawyers and more; and play a
pivotal role in our society.
“During the past year, as we experienced
the height of the coronavirus pandemic,
our nation watched as our essential
workers, many of whom are Caribbean-
Americans, stood steadfast and worked
tirelessly and faithfully to support and protect
our communities in spite of unprecedented
challenges,” continued the representative
for the 42nd Assembly District
in Brooklyn. “Our society owes a debt of
gratitude to Caribbean-Americans across
the United States.”
With the brunt of the COVID-19 pandemic
behind us and summer on the horizon,
another daughter of Haitian immigrants,
Council Member Farah N. Louis,
said she was “excited to see the return of
our city’s vibrancy.
“June is a national celebration of Caribbean
culture, people, and their immeasurable
contributions throughout history,”
Louis, who represents the 45th Council
District in Brooklyn, told Caribbean Life.
“In Flatbush, the heart of Brooklyn and
the Caribbean Diaspora, the festivities
will take center stage amongst a growing
population of immigrants from Antigua to
Trinidad and Tobago.
“This month is meaningful for so many
reasons, because we are forever indebted
to the thousands of Caribbean healthcare
and essential workers who were on the
frontlines while paying homage to the
pillars of our community that we lost during
the pandemic,” she added. “From the
bright and colorful flags to the rhythmic
music and bold flavors, the streets of New
York City will once again come alive and
fill our lives with joy.
“After months of restrictions and uncertainty,
I encourage you to shop and dine
locally to support the small businesses
who need us now more than ever to keep
their doors open and sustain local jobs,”
Louis continued. “Their recovery is crucial
to our city’s economic growth.”
Haitian-born Councilman Dr. Mathieu
Eugene, a candidate for Brooklyn
Borough President, said Caribbean-
American Heritage Month is “an important
time for our community to take
pause and reflect on the many contributions
of the Caribbean American people
to New York City and our country
as a whole.
“Caribbean culture and history helped
shape the present day United States, and
it is only right that we acknowledge the

The treatment that is provided at

emitting diode technology. This technology
was originally developed by NASA to assist

plant. The light therapy will allow the blood
vessels to grow back around the peripheral
nerves and provide them with the proper
nutrients to heal and repair. It’s like adding
water to a plant an seeing the roots grow
deeper and deeper.
