The Reality of Haiti
This is a very disturbing video. Please be warned that it contains very graphic images of the dead bodies in Haiti. Let's listen to "The Cry of the Poor" as we watch this video, and together pray, in the words of Psalm 34, that God will "hear the cries of the poor."
I'm reminded of the tremendous poverty that existed in Haiti just before the earthquake hit. As a friend says, this isn't about the earthquake, it's about the poverty that existed, unexcusably, before the earthquake.
And I ask, can we make a new start of this poor country? Can we build a new, better, and more just society? Can we effect a TRUE change in HAITI? Let's pray....
