The most important?

The first leg of the plane ride on the way back home had me seated next to Alex from Haiti. He is a civil engineering student in Portland, Oregon. We talked a lot about the differences between Haiti and the US. I was going to ask him what was the difference between what was most important for Haitians and what was most important for Americans, but he volunteered it first (recall that Haiti is the “poorest” country in the hemisphere): For a person from Haiti, it is family; for a person from the US, money.
