Haiti has been suffering for so long and is in no position to go through another catastrophe. May the almighty JAH deliver Haiti from the wrath of hurricane Matthew, the same way it delivered her from evil forces in 1804. May evil men like Pat Robertson have nothing to cheer and be joyful about like he did in 2010 when a magnitude 7 earthquake killed more than 200,000 people in Haiti. Jah if Christ the crucified is your son, then remember that when white men scorned, spurned and spat in his face; it was Black men who helped him to carry his cross up to Calvary.
May Jah answer the prayer of Dutty Boukman once again.
The God who created the earth, who created the sun that gives us light.
The God who holds up the ocean, who makes the thunder roar. Our God
who has ears to hear. You who are hidden in the clouds, who watch us from
where you are. You see all that the white has made us suffer. The white
man’s god asks him to commit crimes. But the God within us wants to do good.
Our God, who is so good, so just, He orders us to avenge our wrongs. It’s He
who will direct our arms and bring us the victory. It’s He who will assist us.
We all should throw away the image of the white man’s god who is so pitiless.
Listen to the voice for liberty that sings in all our hearts.
Hurricane Matthew intensified en route to Haiti on Monday, bringing 140-mile-per-hour (220 kph) winds and torrential rain that could wreak havoc in Caribbean nations that had yet to evacuate residents of risky coastal homes.
The center of Matthew, a violent Category 4 storm, is expected to close in on southwestern Haiti on Monday night, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said.
It has veered from Jamaica but the slow-moving cyclone is still forecast to bring gale-force winds and dump hazardous amounts of rain on the island.
Crawling north at just 6 miles per hour (9 kph), the storm threatens to linger enough for its winds and rain to cause great damage, especially over Haiti where deforestation exacerbates flooding and mudslides.
A combination of weak government and precarious living conditions make the country particularly vulnerable to natural disasters.
More than 200,000 people were killed when a magnitude 7 earthquake struck in 2010.
“We are worried about the slow pace of Hurricane Matthew,” said Ronald Semelfort, director of Haiti’s national meteorology center. “Even in normal times, when we have rain we have flooding that sometimes kills people,” said Semelfort, comparing Matthew to 1963’s Hurricane Flora, which swept away entire villages and killed thousands in Haiti.
