It’s that wonderful time of year known as Christmas when joy and excitement fill the air all around the world. However, amidst all the festivities, there is a lingering sense of sadness. A feeling of a not so jolly Christmas is also felt.
How can we fully embrace the season’s happiness while knowing that many others are suffering? How can it be a jolly Christmas In places like Haiti, when people are leaving their homes in droves, desperately searching for a better life?
Now, more than ever is the perfect time for us to pause and reflect on ways to end their plight. For far too long, the true spirit of Christmas has eluded their lives.
It is undeniable that injustice, political turmoil, kidnappings, and violence have unfortunately become a part of their everyday existence.
Haiti, a historically significant black republic, is facing extreme adversity, but how much more can its people endure? While it is often said that the destiny of Haitians lies solely in their hands, perhaps it is time for us to come together and find a solution.
This holiday season should catalyze the awakening of our collective consciousness and inspire us to make a meaningful impact. I am eager to hear your thoughts on this urgent matter.
