    Thank you Bobby! I wanted to post something earlier today but I don't have words for it. Truly horrific! My heart goes out to those suffering through this right now.

    Hi guys and thanks for viewing this. I live not too far away....wo we had some serious lack of tide but that was all. I saw pics and videos and read stories by some folks there....it is a living nightmare. So much destruction and and well you have seen it or heard it but they seem to just get Hell everytime around. It is so bad. The American Red Cross and others are asking for any donations at the link above, if you can help....God Bless you. Even a prayer would help a lot. Thanks again to all who do.

    A little info on Haiti

    this was sent from a friend.

    The country of Haiti was hit by a major 7.0 earthquake yesterday... there have been many, many aftershocks, some huge in their own right and they have been continuing right up until the moment before I started writing this, surely with more to come. The people of the country need our help, both financial and spiritual (money & prayers) - please consider contributing to the Red Cross on their behalf, they already needed help and they are going to need a LOT more.

    Historically, this land has been sacred to the Taino. The island was known as Kiskeya (or Quisqueya - if you prefer the Spanish version of the Taino name). The huge peak in the center of the mountain which is now called Pico Duarte, was known to our ancestors as Hayti, which meant 'sacred high mountain'. Our ancestors believed the higher the mountain, the nearer to Yaya and therefore more sacred. Many of our Taino ancestors called the island 'bohio'. The literal translation of bohio to the Taino was round house, but just as we call our house, our state or our country our home, when our Ancestors from Kiskeya called it 'bohio' as the records of the conquistadores show they did, what they meant was that this was their home.

    The island of Kiskeya was divided into 5 casigazcos: Maguana, ruled by Caonabo, Marien, ruled by Guacanagari, Magua, ruled by Guarionex, Higuey, ruled by Cotubanama (Caonabo's grandmother) and later Higuayo, and Xaragua, ruled by first Bohikiyo and later his sister, the kacike/casique Anacaona. Xaragua is the region where the earthquake hit January 12, 2010 a date that, ironically, is also the date of the first battle between the Taino (Ciguayos) of Samana (on the north coast of Kiskeya) and the Spanish which took place in on January 12, 1493.


    Interesting info, hu?
