Hello Madamn Secretary:

My question relates to the deplorable conditions in Haiti:

Could there not be a Master's level Peace Corp type of program implemented for the purpose of building schools, teaching in the schools, in addition to providing nutrition information/ food supplies, health care, and suitable living spaces? I think there are literally thousands of retirees who would love to serve in this capacity. I'm one of them.

Continued success!

Is the lift of the embargo on Cuba a real issue to President's Obama government? Due to the 5th Summit of Americas, this issue has been wide discussed in Brazil. General opinion argues the embargo most end. Do you think international pressure over this topic might end up disturbing the U.S.-Cuba conversation to lift the embargo?

I just wanted to say (I know I'm being selfish here) that I am extremely proud of Hillary Clinton's accomplishments of being appointed to Secretary of State. With that being said....I miss her terribly as NY Senator. I wish her the best..but want her to know she is missed in NY. Peace.

Madam Secretary Hillary Clinton:

Leveling the plane field for trade, especially in agriculture, is vital for developing countries to eradicate poverty. How committed is the U.S. Government to the finalization of the Doha Development Round of the WTO and by extension to the cause of poverty reduction?

Thank you for your kind attention.
