Remembering Haiti -- Three Years Later
My son told me he was going to the airport tonight to pick up his friend's dad. The dad is returning from an annual mission trip to Haiti.

It was 3 years ago, on January 12, 2010, that Haiti suffered a magnitude 7.0 earthquake.

316,000 lost their lives in that earthquake.

Even though the Haiti earthquake no longer appears in the newspapers, the situation has not changed much.

I was reading an article this morning that actually brought tears to my eyes. It was quite revealing as the writer spoke of the ongoing atrocities that appear to have been forgotten about--along with the many victims living in the southern portion of Haiti.

Pictures of overcrowded camps showing families with children living in squalor as the cholera epidemic continues to plague them brings sadness to my heart.
I'm sure they'd love to leave, but where would they go?

No jobs, no money. Sound familiar?

Hope for help doesn't come and International aid falls far short.

It appears the promise of "build back better" meant using aid money to build 5-star hotels for “rich foreigners” and tourists.
[link to www.clintonbushhaitifund.org]

It has been said the Haitians are a resilient people - they know adversity as well anyone.

But after 3 years of living in those camps, I can't imagine the level of frustration many are feeling.

Once again, I was brought to a place of contemplation in my own life where I look at my surroundings and realize how much I DO have compared to others--and to others, it might appear I do not have much.

And I ask myself: "What have I done to help the less fortunate?" and I see what I was able to do, and I didn't.

But it's never too late to start, right?

I may not be able to physically go over there, but I know of others that do and I can send help through them.

And always pray.


Famines, disease, poverty--these will never go away but we can still pray for safety, protection, restoration, renewed hope and help for these struggling families in Haiti..........and in the rest of the world.

It doesn't hurt and I'm sure it's greatly appreciated.

Here is the link for the article I mentioned above, along with a little snip:


Sometimes you can’t help but be sickened by the behavior of certain international organizations helping Haiti recover from the devastating January 2010 earthquake—hit, that is, by a wave of real physical nausea. The other day, I spent an afternoon in the displaced persons camp across from the ruins of St. Anne’s church in downtown Port-au-Prince.

The place was awful, as awful as you can imagine squalid emergency living quarters might be—homes consisting of tent, tarp, tin, sheets, plywood, some cardboard—after three years of dust, dirt, sewage, torrential storms and, to top it off, Hurricane Sandy, which killed at least fifty-four people in Haiti.

Across the street from the camp, where an estimated 600 families are living, Chérestal Jean-Fougère, a camp leader, showed me the portable toilets that had been brought in by relief agencies in the first days after the earthquake. For months, a cleaning company contracted by international relief organizations and consisting of men in rubber regalia came regularly to wash out these toilets with high-powered hoses connected to special pump trucks.

I remember watching them back then and wondering how long this miracle could last. Now I have my answer: for the past six months at least, Jean-Fougère said, no one has come to clean. The contract for the job has run out.

Haiti Quietly Marks Quake's 3rd Anniversary

President Michel Martelly urged Haitians to recall the tens of thousands of people who lost their lives in a devastating earthquake three years ago, marking the disaster's anniversary Saturday with a simple ceremony.

Jan. 12 was observed as a national holiday the last two years to remember the quake. This year, the government said the day would no longer be a holiday but called for the Haitian flag to be flown at half-mast and for nightclubs and "similar establishments" to close.

I Shall Bring My Hand Against ALL Nations, Who Have Forsaken Me

1/14/10 From God The Father - A Letter Given to Timothy, For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear

Question asked by Timothy: Lord, was the earthquake in Haiti part of Your judgments?


[Answer from God The Father] From Haiti also have I removed My hand... For the multitude of their idols have I turned My face from them; and because of all these evils, done by their own hands, have I forsaken them in My anger, says The Lord.
Yet grieve not over all these dead, for by no means does death have the last word. Rather wail and pray for those who remain; wail on the behalf of those who refuse Me, and double for those who continue to rebel against Me, says The Lord. For they shall suffer the full weight of My wrath against the nations.
For I am The Lord and I have purposed, and I shall bring My hand against ALL nations who have forsaken Me! For the nations of the earth parade their whoredoms before Me, continually; greedily do they heap to themselves perversions of every kind; eagerly do they run to commit every sin, which I hate, practicing every abomination to their own hurt. Behold, they celebrate their filthiness in My sight, everyday! And every night do they revel in all their uncleanness!
Peoples of the earth, how long shall you tempt The Lord your God?! For I can no longer bear the sight of you! Behold, I have given you many days to repent, yet you only increase in your rebellion against Me, putting every kind of evil for good!... Quickly covering over every light I have sent to you, in where you have despised Me!... That you might continue in your fornications, and perform all your abominations under the cover of night!... WICKEDNESS OVERFLOWS! It is not at all hidden!

Therefore, thus says The Lord to the inhabitants of the earth: You are fallen! Woe to you! Woe to the peoples of the earth! FOR I AM AGAINST YOU!... But first, you must be forsaken for a time.



Behold the Day has come upon you,
When I shall surely stretch out My arm,
And city by city shall be brought down!

And many mighty men shall fall,
Great men shall be brought to ruin,
And every idol shall be broken!...

They shall all be shattered and broken in pieces!



For the time of recompense has come in,
And it shall continue until the consummation...


Says The Lord...

He who stands and judges the earth.

She went back to look for one young boy that she previously helped, did she find him?

Helping Haiti by aiding one earthquake victim

A little more than a week after a 45-second earthquake ravaged Haiti in January 2010, I drove into Leogane, the epicenter of the catastrophe, where tens of thousands of people had been killed. At the emergency clinic of Doctors Without Borders, hundreds of the injured were waiting in the hot sun for care. There, sitting on his mother’s lap, was a boy named McKenly, then almost 3.

During the quake, a wall of his house had fallen on him and his sister, killing her and lopping off his left hand and his right arm to the elbow. Now he had run out of pain medication. But McKenly was not crying or groaning — just waiting quietly, his bandages bloody. When I returned a few hours later, I found him in basically the same place but across the driveway out of the sun. No one from the clinic had paid him the slightest bit of attention.

Haiti, a name that means "mountainous country," is derived from the language of the Taino Indians who inhabited the island before European colonization.

It was also once called The Jewel of the Antilles because it was the richest colony in the entire world and the busiest trade center in the New World.

Economist estimate that in the 1750s Haiti produced about 40% of all the sugar and 60% of all the coffee consumed in all Europe by 1780. The colony employed a thousand ships and 15.000 French sailors. In France the products were refined, packaged and sold all over Europe.

There were incredible amount of fortunes that was made from this tiny colony on the island of Hispaniola. Haiti, then know as Saint Domingue for a brief time, annually produced more exportable wealth than all of continental North America.

8 Reasons The Earthquake In Haiti Was Gravy For U.S. Contractors

Saturday will mark the three-year anniversary of the 7.0 magnitude earthquake that rocked the capital of Haiti, Port-au-Prince, killing thousands, and drawing billions in aid money from around the world.

Most of it never touched Haitian hands.

Instead, it went to foreign contractors charged with rebuilding the country, as well as unexplained perks for Americans like a deep-fat fryer.

Critics often point to corruption within Haiti as the reason aid money is poorly spent. Last week, for example, the Canadian International Development Agency said it was reviewing the $1 billion it has spent over the past six years and said it was “concerned with the slow progress of development in Haiti due to its weak governing institutions and corruption.”

But neither the Haitian government nor its general population had access to the cash.

Here's why that money hardly reached Haitians themselves:

Haiti can't be helped. It is the culture that is lost. We could give them a trillion dollars and it would only make them kill each other faster.

They can't formulate a working society. They have no concept of civility. The real shame is that they occupy that great property. Like I said, nothing can ever be done to assist them. Maybe total individual control like in the military. Maybe that's how they'll thrive.

If you remember michelle obama pleading for everyone to donate money to Haiti and after all of these years about half according to our lying government has been released to Haiti.

Between obama shuffling the money around and the equally corrupt Haitian government, only token support has gone to those with the greatest needs.

It is the basic problem associated with a Totalitarian government obama deems the money as property of the government and is regulating the release and you can be certain the Haitians will never see the interest from all of our donations.

Hundreds of Thousands Remain Homeless in Haiti Three Years After Earthquake

Despite billions in aid which were supposed to go to the Haitian people, hundreds of thousands are still homeless, living in shanty tent camps as the effects from the earthquake of January 12, 2010 remain.

The earthquake devastated Haiti in January 2010 killing, according to Oxfam International, 250,000 people and injuring another 300,000. 360,000 Haitians are still displaced and living hand to mouth in 496 tent camps across the country according to the International Organization of Migration. Most eat only one meal a day.

Report: Despite quake aid, Haitians continue to live precariously

In particular, advocates say, the U.N. Stabilization Mission, which is known by the French acronym MINUSTAH in Haiti, “should formally acknowledge its responsibility for negligence in the cholera epidemic scandal.”

If you remember michelle obama pleading for everyone to donate money to Haiti and after all of these years about half according to our lying government has been released to Haiti.

Between obama shuffling the money around and the equally corrupt Haitian government, only token support has gone to those with the greatest needs.

It is the basic problem associated with a Totalitarian government obama deems the money as property of the government and is regulating the release and you can be certain the Haitians will never see the interest from all of our donations.

Hundreds of Thousands Remain Homeless in Haiti Three Years After Earthquake

Despite billions in aid which were supposed to go to the Haitian people, hundreds of thousands are still homeless, living in shanty tent camps as the effects from the earthquake of January 12, 2010 remain.

The earthquake devastated Haiti in January 2010 killing, according to Oxfam International, 250,000 people and injuring another 300,000. 360,000 Haitians are still displaced and living hand to mouth in 496 tent camps across the country according to the International Organization of Migration. Most eat only one meal a day.

Report: Despite quake aid, Haitians continue to live precariously

In particular, advocates say, the U.N. Stabilization Mission, which is known by the French acronym MINUSTAH in Haiti, “should formally acknowledge its responsibility for negligence in the cholera epidemic scandal.”

Sad, isn't it? All I could think of after reading your words was: We reap what we sow.

Look, he is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see him, even those who pierced him;
and all the peoples of the earth will mourn because of him. So shall it be! Amen.

Bourdain has a perspective of truth.

Just got through watching it.

Tony's last few words:

"Everything is connected"

"It's easy to push the bad stuff out of our consciousness, try and forget, move on, but it always seems to come back."

Thanks again, pool.
This was a well done documentary.

Re: Remembering Haiti -- Three Years Later
I went to Haiti two years ago. If you want to see the future of the US, look to Haiti. This is what a government handout culture does to people.

I was in Quanaminthe, in the northern portion. It was not hit as hard by the earthquake, but what rubble they had was pushed into the middle of the road and left there.

The marketplace in Ouanaminthe is right on top of the city dump, by the bridge into DaJabon, DR. People are washing their clothes in the same water they crap into. Open sewers are the way most human refuse is removed from the resident's hovels.

Haitians are a shiftless lot. I observed that they sit around and don't work. I was working at an orphanage, and mentioned to the director that the kids there should be put to work in the garden plot on the outskirts of town, he looked at me like I was crazy.

The Haitians play all day and goof off. It's far easier to do nothing and get a paycheck (no matter how meager), than to lift a shovel or hoe and do manual labor. The concept of free enterprise is lost on on most Haitians. I was to find out that the orphanage director understood the concept of crony capitalism a little too well.

The orphanage director (Willio) was caught bringing in children from the surrounding community every time he was expecting a visit from The Americans. It made his orphanage look more populated than it actually was, and the neighbors were getting monetary kickbacks from him for loaning their children to him for the weekend.

They wanted his to run for mayor of the town for the money he was bringing in to the community.

Here's a Google maps link so you can see where I was:

See all the unfinished houses? They didn't collapse. They were abandoned when the Haitians lost interest in moving off their parent's rooftop.

Yep, take a good look at Haiti. That's what's coming to the US.

The "dad" I spoke about in the first post above just returned home a couple of hours ago.

Next time I see him, I intend to ask him how his trip to Haiti turned out. I'm sure he will have a story or two to tell. He's been there numerous times and always looks forward to the trip.

I've already given thought to what you said about it coming to the U.S. This thread did serve to remind us of the disaster that took place 3 years ago, but that earthquake should also remind us that creation groans under the weight of sin and the judgement of God.

The entire universe awaits the revelation of the glory of the coming Lord.

Creation cries out for the hope of the New Creation.
