As the whole world is turned to the tragedy of Haiti, and the poor becoming poorer, wounded or dead – we seek for meaning.
A prayer –
May this people and country be helped to finally live and control their own future.
May help from the outside honor their independence, allow them to raise their own food, mill their own flour, make their own cement, control their own telephone system.
May they have help from true friends and no longer be controled from those seeking their wealth without respect.
May this tragedy and the outpouring of aid be a hopeful new beginning, making amends for the repression that has been its history.
May God comfort all the wounded and suffering and receive with Compassion those who perished. Amen
