About the work: 
This passionate piece takes inspiration from the Divine light we all carry within ourselves. Its strong message encourages hope, love, and the need for our light to shine! A sure audience pleaser!


English Translation of Haitian Creole text:

Children of light, do not stay in the dark;
Truth and Love are stronger than the law.
From the beginning of time the word was spoken:
Darkness and evil had invaded the earth;
Everything was functioning in reverse.
The Lord decided to put order in disorder.  

“The Lord said, let there be light: and there was light”
Light in the universe, light in the depths of our hearts.

So many good things in the beautiful flame of this light:
Awareness, development,
Understanding and compassion,
Truth and dignity,
Wisdom and justice,
Liberty and hope,
Love and happiness…
