We had a Black butterfly coming to our home when I was growing up, and my mother or grandma will kill it. The next day it will be back again in the same spot, and it was a huge butterfly four sizes of a regular butterfly.

It went on for years, and it was very bizarre.

Haitians are superstitious, and suspicious for good reasons.

I could write a book, and saw some pretty weird activities in Haiti.

I left Haiti 40 years ago, and was a teen.
I have not been back, because of politics and voodoo (Black Magic).

I was married into a family who practiced it, and if it was not for GOD's grace I will not be writing on your site today.
