There are so many Hindus because India cheap labor was imported in the 1800’s to replace freed African slaves. Suriname has the 6th highest rates of suicide and attempted suicide in the world, especially by ingesting pesticides and a majority of those are men of Asian decent.

INTERPRETATION OF IMAGERY

Saw a swirling mass of contradictions: Spanish nation speaking Dutch, ecosystems vying for ore extraction, Christ against Gandhi, mainland nation acting like the islands. Identity crises.


Rom 15:13 Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that ye should abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
