Have you ever wondered if you’ve contributed negatively/positively to your current situation?
According to Nature.com in its Nov. 2nd article, "A tropical cyclone is a rare occurrence...The frequency of intense cyclones such as these has risen in recent years, and there is evidence that the observed increase is the result of a general shift towards conditions more favorable for intense tropical cyclones."
Our beloved Haiti is now experiencing another stormy moment in its history. The frequency of intense political storms such as these has risen in recent years and there is evidence that the observed increase is the result of a general shift towards anarchy. It’s not a nature-made one, rather its a man-made storm.
The mindset of most Haitian politicians is set on personal profits instead of the welfare of their country. This narrow thinking simply puts Haiti’s future in serious danger.
The actions of the current Haitian opposition parties are both harmful and dangerous to the advancement of the Caribbean island. It is not to say that the current Haitian President (Mr. Jovenel Moise) is blameless. Instead, we are experiencing a lack of rule of laws on display. The democratic process would make the political party in power pay for its consequences on Election Day by the people. Their failure to lead and provide security and meet the basic needs of the population has resulted in what we are seeing now.
The opposition parties called Monday October 7th 2019 (Black Monday) meaning nothing was supposed to move on that day; no public transportation, no schools, no markets, no stores, nothing at all. This is exactly we experienced with the Duvalier regime in 1957. While we can’t afford another Duvalier style of government, we are in dire need of serious leadership and rule of law to govern this nation.
It’s simply a shame to once again call upon the United Nations to bring stability. It minimizes our sovereignty while the poorest of the poor are paying a high price by not having access to basic daily necessities.
I know of many patriotic man and woman living abroad willing to help their country but they are prevented to do so due to the unnecessary law in our constitution today.
So, I'm asking the Haitian parliament to quickly rectify the laws that are preventing the Haitians living abroad, either in the U.S., Canada or elsewhere, to be engaged in the political process and to run for political offices to facilitate help for their country in serious need of their assistance today.
While we are making plans for January 2020 for our mission teams, hoping for a break in the situation, I’m asking once again for your much appreciated prayers. I truly believe Haiti’s future is bright but we need people with a sense of "Haiti First" to get there.
-Please pray for the weak mothers who can’t nurture their newborn and have no access to the formula.
-Pray for the construction workers who cannot purchase construction materials to continue with the Mercy Hospital project.
⁃ Pray for our dedicated interpreters depending on our arrival for survival
⁃ Pray for our kids in our orphanages; they miss the visits of their sponsors
⁃ Pray for our leaders to make hard but necessary decisions for the advancement of our beloved Haiti.
This terrible storm is man-made. Men need to take responsibility and fix it.
Thank you so much for your time.
