Neither water, air, fire or royal dust, scare us. It is us. Nou fe yon sel ko. Love is stronger than death.
Haitians have mobilized to help the Haitians hurt in the South. Whole groups and classes of school children are traveling South to help clear roads, yards and do whatever is necessary to help the Hurricane Matthew victims.
The same happened during the earthquake. This time, people all over Haiti, including from the quake zone, who know the pain and trauma of abandonment - the elderly, the youthful, children with their parents - all, are traveling to the South to be in solidarity with those most affected. Our friends and family are there to lend a hand wherever they can; to clear yards, lift up down trees, clear away the debris, rescue what's possible of personal belongings, care for the hurt and sick. The Haitian population going to the South bring clothes, food, cooking pots, utensils, camping supplies, medicine, portable bucket water filter kits, first aid kits, construction materials and the like, because the population lost everything. Right now they can't buy anything, the stores are close, houses are gone, the banks are offline and electricity is gone in many areas of Southern Haiti. (Go here to contribute to Ezili's Zili Dlo help in solidarity.)
Haiti fishermen travel by boat to reach the areas that are unreachable by washed-out roads with whatever they manage to collect to bring to help. We will survive and more, fight back. Haitians will not lose their lands in the South to foreigners. It's our Ancestors' royal dust. Someone should have pointed that out to the Laboratory idiots thinking to scare and panic Haitians with a giant skull.
We are made of the elements, vibration to matter. Neither water, air, fire or royal dust, scare us.
It is us. Nou se Ginen. Nou fe yon sel ko.
Love is stronger than death.
Kenbe djam Ayisyen, pa lage.
