Haiti My Luv

So Today I've Been Really Devastated By The News Stories I've Been Hearing About Haiti And The 7.0 Measured Earthquake That Occurred There. I Can't Say How Sad I Am And How My Heart Hurts For My People. My Parents Were Born In Haiti...I Was Born In America But I Was Always One For Cultural Pride When It Came To Haiti. The Thing That Irritates Me Is Just Why Haiti...They Are Already Bad Enough Without The Earthquake But Now? My Biggest Fear Is That Haiti Will Never Be Able To Bounce Back From This And I Dread To See Tomorrow (When Morning Sunlight Comes) How Many Lives Were Actually Lost. So Far From Watching CNN They Say There Have Been 24 Aftershocks...Now I've Never Experienced An Earthquake But Common Sense Tells Me They Are Traumatic. I Just Pray For All Those In Haiti And I Hope The Death Toll Isn't As Bad As We Are Assuming It Is (Since Communication And Info Coming Out Of Haiti Is Limited). I Know Some Of My Blogger Fam On Here Are Haitian And I Also Pray For You And Yours Guys.

Oh....And I Also Found An Article Written Oct 11, 2008.....In This Article A Geologist Actually Predicted That An Earthquake Of This Magnitude Would Happen In Haiti 1 YEAR AND A HALF AGO

"A recent article in Haiti’s Le Matin newspaper has quoted 65 year old geologist and former professor at the Geological Institute of Havana, Patrick Charles, as stating that “conditions are ripe for major seismic activity in Port-au-Prince. The inhabitants of the Haitian capital need to prepare themselves for an event which will inevitably occur...” According to him, the danger is imminent. He ads “Thank God that science has provided instruments that help predict these types of events and show how we have arrived at these conclusions.”

Here's The Link ...I Mean This Man Literally Predicted A 7.2 Earthquake In..... PORT-AU-PRINCE....So While Some Of Us Are Shocked This Man Knew It Was Coming All Along...SMH.


Once We Get More Info In The Daytime I Will Update Again U Guys...Pray For These People.

this was definitely a sad event. I lost my 5yr old cousin because of this earthquake which was hard, but I am happy that the rest of my family have survived.

I just wonder why nothing was done before hand if it was known that such a catastrophic earthquake was going to occur?? Shows how pple wait until something bad happens to actually take action. SAd but true
