Woodring,
This was not the result of an earthquake, even though one can tie this catastrophe to the tremors and the unsettling of the ground by the magnitude of the 12 January 2010 earthquake.

It has been raining in Cap-Haitien and the heavy stone from the mountain top in Carenage rolled down. I have seen this huge stone since I spent several years in the 70s in Carenage.

We Christians believe in the resurrection, and the life to come. I personally cannot wait for it, and am waiting patiently for the second coming.

I suggest that we pray harder, read our bibles, and find a place to worship our Father.

We should not be discouraged, because Jesus is alive and on his way back. I should been dead a long time ago, and perhaps if Haitians had their ways not being born at all. Our brothers, and sisters like to play gods. I do not have to go into details, and my entire existence is full of miracles from my birth to today (2/15/2010).
