Haiti Week (NY) and Haiti Now

December 8, 2010

Dear Friends,

As Haiti week begins I think its important to talk about what is happening right now.  Many cities are burning today and no one can go outside. There are tires burning, Haitians being shot, wounded, gassed; manifestations, Aux Cayes is burning down, and essentially the country is burning down due to the presidential results announced last night.  Everyone is hearing gunshots and seeing smoke above their cities, including myself. Right now its Cap, Leogane, Aux Cayes, and Port au Prince…for now.

I’m sure you all have been up on the news but as Haiti week begins lets put Haiti into perspective because so long as the people are not respected and their freedoms are not respected, there will be no peace, and the people will continue to suffer even more.

Things are developing minute by minute and we don’t know if it will be a turn for the worst or that the unrest will be scaled down.  I pray for a resolution and hope that these events send some healing energy to our beloved Haiti.

Big Love

    Hey please keep writing. We arent hearing much of anything here in NYC. I was on the drive home listening to 1010 wins and they briefly mentioned rioting in Haiti, there was literally a one liner about it and then nothing else was said to explain whats happening and why. I’m reposting your blog posts on my facebook page. Just wanted to give you a heads up that we aren’t aware of whats happening here in NYC..at least the main stream media hasnt said much of anything about it

      I have been reposting on my facebook primarily. I will include videos and links from other blogs and sources in a few so that those abroad have access and Haitians aroudn the world can tune in on what is happening here. Thank you for the advice.
